Mary Gauthier, one of America’s great singer/songwriters makes a rare Long Island appearance for the Sunday Street Concert Series. Mary emerged on the Boston music scene in the late 1990’s where she ran a Cajun restaurant, Dixie Kitchen, which eventually lent its name as the title of her first album. 1998’s Drag Queens in Limousines gained her attention and her five subsequent studio albums sealed her position as a Southern Gothic-shaded songwriter as well as a riveting concert performer. Well-known songs of hers include “I Drink,” “Karla Faye,” “Blood on Blood” and “Mercy Now.”
Of her latest studio album, Trouble and Love, the Los Angeles Times has said: “Her razor-sharp eye for detail and her commitment to unsentimental self-reflection puts her in a class with greats such as Kris Kristofferson, John Prine, and yes, Bob Dylan.”
Mary Gauthier has received numerous “Artist of the Year” awards and has had her songs recorded by Jimmy Buffett, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton and others. Several television shows, including “Nashville”, have used her songs on the soundtrack. In addition to writing powerful songs, Mary has published several short stories.
