Americana Troubadour, Singer and Songwriter
“Every tune is a rough gem of melody, misery and economy, as Gauthier excavates romantic wreckage like an archaeologist telling the story of a fossilized love.”
“…her razor-sharp eye for detail and her commitment to unsentimental self-reflection puts her in a class with greats such as Kris Kristofferson, John Prine and yes, Bob Dylan.”
"Friends, I am excited to announce that I have signed a book deal with Yale University Press. Steve Wasserman, the Editor of Yale Press, approached me and asked if I would write for them. My answer was a shrill, high-pitched, girly-sounding YES!"
Sat, Oct 17, 8:00 pm (doors at 7)

What is Common Fence Music?
Common Fence Music is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization.
Common Fence Music began as an activity of the Common Fence Point Improvement Association in 1993 but became a separate organization soon after. Today we work side by side with our friends in the Association to keep the hall vibrant for all who rent the room for various functions. Common Fence Point Improvement Association Community Hall is a special place as this neighborhood community gathering spot was built as a country music dance hall and it has great live sound. The atmosphere is congenial with tables fanning out around the stage. And, there is plenty of free parking.
