Sunday, March 27, 2:30 – 3:45 PM—Conversation
Gwendolyn Thompkins of Music Inside Out moderates a conversation between two of our most beloved singer/songwriters. Rickie Lee Jones has made New Orleans her adopted home; Mary Gauthier was born here. Both have devoted followings for their idiosyncratic music. These women talk about the reckoning with their lives that came with writing recent memoirs, Last Chance Texaco: Chronicles of an American Troubadour,by Jones, and Saved by a Song: The Art and Healing Power of Songwriting, by Gauthier. They also talk about what’s next for them in music and writing.
