Green Wood Coffee House Series is not a First United Methodist Church of Ann Arbor program, but is an independent/private venture. Communications from GWCH do not necessarily reflect the views of FUMC of Ann Arbor or its leadership.
We want to keep our artists, volunteers, and audience safe! Masking is currently optional at all events. We may update masking protocol when appropriate.

Mary Gauthier was twelve years old when she taught herself to play guitar with a Mel Bay basic guitar workbook. Songs became lifelines to her, and she longed to write her own, one day. Then, for a decade, while struggling with addiction, her call to songwriting faded. It wasn't until she got sober and went to an open mic with a friend that she realized that she not only still wanted to write songs, she needed to. Gauthier has channeled a long line of eloquent works, including the achingly beautiful, "Mercy Now." The Associated Press named Mary Gauthier one of the best songwriters of her generation. Her album Rifles & Rosary Beads was nominated for a Grammy award. Her songs have been recorded by dozens of artists, including Boy George, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Bettye Lavette, Kathy Mattea, Amy Helm and Candi Staton. Mary has just released her first book, "Saved by a Song: The Art and Healing Power of Songwriting." Part memoir, part philosophy of art, part songwriting nuts-and-bolts, the book celebrates the power of song to inspire and bring seemingly different kinds of people together. www.marygauthier.com
Mary will also present 3 songs in the Saturday 5pm service on 11/18/23.
