June 5 @ 8:00 pm


“…Rifles & Rosary Beads, is not only one of the most arresting American singer-songwriter records in recent years, but one of the most vital pieces of art to come out of those two wars.” -Rolling Stone Country

“You’ll be Hard-pressed to hear a more powerfully moving work than Rifles & Rosary Beads this year — or any other.” –LA Times

2018 Highlights include:
• Mary received her first Grammy nomination – Best Folk Album
• She won Album of the Year at the International Folk Music Awards
• Her album “Rifles & Rosary Beads” was nominated Album of the Year at the Americana Music Association
• She was named International Artist of the Year by the UK Americana Music Association
• Entertainment Weekly named this album one of the 10 Best Records of the Year

Mary Gauthier’s Rifles & Rosary Beads is a collection of songs she co-wrote with US Veterans over the last five years through Songwriting With 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 affect war has had on the Americans who’ve served, and their families.

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.”
