Mary Gauthier’s career retrospective to start in 2024

Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter and accomplished author, Mary Gauthier has announced a very special tour for the UK and Ireland in April and May 2024. In these unique career retrospective shows, Mary will perform a selection of audience favourites from all eleven of her studio records, accompanied by her partner, Jaimee Harris, who will also open the shows.


Like the troubadours of old, Mary will sing her much loved songs under the spotlight, telling stories of her thirty years of performing her own music around the world, an experience that has helped her understand and personally experience the redemptive power of songs and songwriting. The dates are as follows:

From a crib at St. Vincent’s Women and Infants Asylum in New Orleans to being walked onto the Grand Ole Opry stage by Marty Stuart. From spending opening night of her restaurant drunk in a Dorchester, MA. jail cell to hearing her song ‘I Drink’ on Bob Dylan’s ‘Theme Time Radio Show.’ From serving Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings oyster po-boys at her Cajun restaurant in Boston to sharing a booking agent and festival stages with the incredible duo. From spending her 18th birthday sitting in a Salina, KS jail cell to standing next to John Prine at the GRAMMYs. What reads as a screenplay for a Hollywood blockbuster is a life actually lived by the true troubadour, Mary Gauthier.


Carrying on Woody Guthrie’s legacy, Mary continues to inspire audiences around the world with the simple idea that a guitar and a song are the strongest of steady weapons on the path to both personal and universal freedom.


Her latest album, ‘Dark Enough To See The Stars’, was released to glowing reviews in 2022, including The Sun who said: “Navigating our complicated world is hard but made a little easier by Gauthier.”  And Entertainment Focus, who declared Mary “One of the great storytellers and songwriters of our age.” Her recent book ‘Saved by a Song’, excerpts from which will feature in these shows, was named as a “must read” by Rolling Stone Magazine.


For over thirty years, Mary Gauthier has turned to songs and stories to help her untangle the traumatic mysteries of her life — most notably adoption trauma and addiction. Not long after getting sober, she began to use songwriting as a superhighway to find purpose in her life. Music and song helped her heal from the wounds that made her an addict. She then used her personal experience to help wounded veterans and their families tell their stories in song. Thirty-four years sober now, Mary brings her long-term recovery to the stage in this special show to talk about alchemy, redemption, and the art of songwriting as a form of salvation.
