Mary Gauthier: Green Wood Coffee House Series (First United Methodist Church).:
A Louisiana native currently living in Boston who is often compared to Steve Earle and Lucinda Williams, Gauthier specializes in vividly detailed, sharply observed songs about people on the edge that one critic has dubbed “country noir.” She’s also known for the luminous purity of her singing. Her latest CD, Dark Enough to See the Stars, is a collection of songs that explore the intertwining of love and grief. Opener: Jaimee Harris, an Austin-based Americana singer-songwriter whose latest album, The Congress House Sessions, is a powerful acoustic reworking of the raw songs from her critically acclaimed debut, Red Rescue. 8 p.m., FUMC Green Wood Church, 1001 Green Rd. at Glazier Way. Tickets $20 in advance at greenwoodcoffeehouse.org and at the door. 665–8558., . . . . . .
