A trifecta! Three women, three guitars, and wisdom from three lifetimes spent in pursuit of song. Eliza Gilkyson is one of our favorite songwriter/singers. An Austin legend, she will be performing for the third time on the Lane Series. She is joined by 2 equally gifted friends: Mary Gauthier and Gretchen Peters. Mary has written songs recorded by dozens of artists, including Jimmy Buffett, Blake Shelton, and Tim McGraw. Her songs have been used in film twoTV, most recently on the ABC hit show Nashville, HBO’s Banshee, and Masterpiece Theater’s Case Histories. Twice Grammy-nominated and CMA Song Of The Year winner for the groundbreaking “Independence Day” (Martina McBride), Gretchen Peters has cut her own artistic path, releasing nine critically-acclaimed albums on the way, and is a songwriter for artists as diverse as Etta James, Trisha Yearwood, Bonnie Raitt, The Neville Brothers, Patty Loveless, George Strait, Bryan Adams, and Faith Hill.
