Last Friday I drove to Ottersum, in the south of the country, to see Mary Gauthier. A great singer and songwriter, whose career started when she was way in her 30s. She just released a very impressive new album called “The Foundling”, a concept album about her own life, being a foundling and adoptee.
The gig took place in the wonderful Roepaen in Ottersum. What a great environment.
It turned out to be one of the most intriguing concerts I have ever visited.
After the concert I took the opportunity to have a short chat with Mary. During the show she’d said: This is my story, but everybody has his own story. We talked about The Foundling and B.Loose, how we both had our own autobiographical stories recorded. We exchanged our CDs and she even signed my CD.
Thanks Mary! It was a memorable night. A night to remember.
And yes indeed, we both had our pink glasses.
And thanks to Kazzette Titia and Theo for having me as your guest!
