Mary Gauthier

Falcon Ridge at 25

by John Platt
Jake Jacobson

Falcon Ridge isn't Newport. That's both a blessing and a curse. Where the Newport Folk Festival sells out 10,000 tickets instantly, the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival draws maybe a third of that. Where Newport attracts headliners like Beck, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, and Trombone Shorty, Falcon Ridge's headliners are the likes of Dar Williams, Ellis Paul, and Susan Werner. In the last few years Newport has booked hot young bands like The Lumineers, The Avett Brothers, and David Wax Museum, while Falcon Ridge has missed the boat on them.

Mary Gauthier even earned a fan in Bob Dylan with her 2005 album 'Mercy Now,' and now returns to her sparse, Southern gothic storytelling on a new set of tunes called 'Between Daylight and Dark.' Nashville is home, but Mary recently made a stop in New York City to talk with John Platt about the songs and themes on the album.

Mary Gauthier - Words and Music - 2010

An award-winning folksinger with a penchant for storytelling, Mary Gauthier's stories on her latest album, "The Foundling" are her own. She played some new songs, and told WFUV's John Platt about her time in an orphanage, and her particularly long hard road to become a successful musician. (4/20/10)
