About Fall Concert: Mary Gauthier

On Thursdays this September and October, join us at Fruitlands Museum for a Fall Concert Series in the event tent. On Thursday, October 3 we welcome Mary Gauthier to the stage!

“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.” — Randy Lewis, Los Angeles Time

Her eleventh album, the first record in over 8 years consisting of all her own songs, Dark Enough to See the Stars, follows the profound antidote to trauma, Rifles & Rosary Beads, her 2018 collaborative work with wounded Iraq war veterans. It garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Folk Album, as well as a nomination for Album of the Year by the Americana Music Association. Publication of her first book, the illuminating Saved by a Song: The Art and Healing Power of Songwriting, in 2021, brought her more praise. Brandi Carlile has said, “Mary’s songwriting speaks to the tender aspects of our humanness. We need her voice in times like these more than we ever have.” The Associated Press called Gauthier “one of the best songwriters of her generation.”

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 and have appeared extensively in Film and Television, most recently on HBO TV’s Yellowstone.

Concert begins at 6:30PM. Doors Open 6PM. Space is limited and pre-registration required.
Member $28. Nonmember $35.

Seating:

Fall Concerts at Fruitlands are seated concerts that take place under the event tent. With coverage these events are able to move forward rain or shine. Tent sides can also be lowered for heating for cooler temperatures.
