ANOTHER MUSICAL GEM!
"The Foundling" is another gem of a CD from Mary Gauthier. She decided to write an album that told a narrative, in this case, her own story of being abandoned at birth and her search 40 years later for her birth mother. Ms. Gauthier said that she was inspired by a Willie Nelson album, where he, too, presented a unified theme across the songs. The songs are very personal and poignant, especially the rejection Ms. Gauthier experienced when she finally located and found the courage to call her birth mother ("you say I'm a secret--nobody knows--and you can't talk about it now, and you really gotta go"). This is a lovely album, and it is highly recommended for those of you who like folk singers who write intimate songs that are rich and meaningful. Ms. Gauthier has her own very individualistic style of composing songs, and each of her albums just gets better and better.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
