MBT LOOKOUT SESSIONS
with Special Guest Jaimee Harris
Saturday | March 25, 2023 | 7:30PM
Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier and Jaimee Harris bring their powerful and emotional songs to the MBT Listening Lounge!
Hailed by the Associated Press as “one of the best songwriters of her generation,” Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Mary Gauthier has presented extraordinary confessional songs - deeply personal, profoundly emotional pieces – for over 25 years. Now, with her eleventh album, Dark Enough to See the Stars, Gauthier has employed her art to traverse the uncharted waters of the past few years. Dark follows her profound exploration of trauma made in collaboration with wounded Iraq war veterans, Rifles & Rosary Beads, which garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Folk Album, as well as a nomination for Album of the Year by the Americana Music Association. Mary published her first book, Saved by a Song: The Art and Healing Power of Songwriting, in 2021.
Mary’s songs have been recorded by dozens of artists, including Jimmy Buffett, Dolly Parton, Boy George, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Bettye Lavette, Mike Farris, Kathy Mattea, Bobby Bare, Amy Helm and Candi Staton. Her songs have appeared extensively in film and television, and most recently on HBO TV’s Yellowstone.
Mary’s songwriting speaks to the tender aspects of our humanness. We need her voice in times like these more than we ever have”
With songwriting as powerful as hers, there’s no need to go looking for qualifiers. She’s a unique, intrinsically valuable musical voice. And there’s never a surplus of those.”
