Mary Gauthier

Summary: Mary Gauthier (born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1962) is an American folk singer/songwriter. Given up at birth by a mother she never knew, Mary was adopted. At age 15, she ran away from home and stole her parents' car, and spent the next several years in detox, halfway houses, and living with friends, she spent her 18th birthday in jail. These experiences provided fodder for her songwriting later on (particularly her song ", Drag Queens in Limousines", ).
