One of our favorite contemporary songwriters, Mary Gauthier delivers her self-described "country-noir" style with an authenticity and rawness matched by few. Recorded in an intimate venue -- an artists’ ranch in Wimberley, Texas – this new live album features some of our favorite songs of hers that touch on the unsettling side of contemporary American society: executed murderers, unrepentant alcoholics, troubled teenage adoptees, even drag queens in limousines. She is accompanied by former Duhk Tania Elizabeth on fiddle and percussionist Mike Meadows.
