Mary Gauthier’s Rifles & Rosary Beads is a collection of songs she co-wrote with US Veterans over the last five years through SongwritingWith:Soldiers, a non-profit that offers Veterans a chance to work with professional songwriters. The songs on Rifles and Rosary Beads tell the story of the effect war has had on the Americans who’ve served, and their families. “You'll be hard pressed to hear a more powerful moving work this year - or any other.” Randy Lewis, LA Times. The Americana Music Association has nominated Rifles & Rosary Beads for Record of the Year, and Entertainment Weekly named it one of the 10 best records of the year, so far.
Mary Gauthier is a regular on Grand Ole Opry, and has had songs recorded by Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Jimmy Buffett, Bobby Bare Sr., Bettye Lavette, Amy Helm, Mike Farris and many others. Eight albums into her career, she was named, “One of Americana’s most admired artists across the US and around the world,” by The Wall Street Journal, noting her “razor-sharp eye for detail and her commitment to unsentimental self-reflection.”
Over the last 12 years, folk singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier has emerged as a unique talent, capable of painting an entire universe of emotions within the constraints of her three-minute tracks. - Entertainment Weekly
Mary Gauthier is no stranger to the gut punch. The lyrical precision on the folk singer’s first eight studio albums is testament to her ability to transform her own trauma into a purposeful and communal narrative. - NPR Weekend Edition
Mary Gauthier will also lead a songwriting workshop at the MCL Grand on Saturday, Feb. 22.
