Mary Gauthier Songwriting Workshop
July 11-14, 2019
Thistle Farms Cafe | Nashville, TN
*TWO SPOTS LEFT*
I will be working with songwriters of all levels for a three-day songwriting intensive in July at Thistle Farms Cafe Education Space.
Do you have a story to tell?
Are you looking for the courage and motivation to tell your story?
If so, this workshop is for you. We have several folks who have joined us over the years who are not songwriters, but participated in the workshop to find new ways to understand storytelling. Everyone interested in story, be it their own or the story of others, is welcome!
This work is a journey into the mystery of what our songs can teach us.
"Art is a walk from the known towards the unknown. The noble goal of the art of song is to take risks, become emotionally honest, and create deep resonance with self and listeners.
I push myself and invite my students to break through fear-based ruts. I encourage piercing through the unknown to make it known - that students may discover and know the truth of their own unique voice.
My hope is to encourage each songwriter
to write the songs only he or she can write."
- Mary Gauthier

I am honored that Rifles & Rosary Beads was nominated for Best Country/Americana Album at this year's Libera Awards!
"The Libera Awards is the largest independent music award show in the world. It celebrates the successes of the independent music community,
from the artists that create the music to the labels that release and promote it."
Congratulations to all of the nominees, and to John Prine for taking home the award in New York City last week!
BULLET HOLES IN THE SKY
"And they thank me for my service
and wave their little flags
They genuflect on Sundays
and yes, they'd send us back
But I believe in God and country
and in angels up on high
And in heaven shining down on us
through bullet holes in the sky..."
- "Bullet Holes In The Sky"
