Mary Esther Carter
BTV Market Music: Mary Esther Carter
City Hall Park

Mary Esther Carter sings from her guts. Tuning into a raw and deeply soulful place, her sound transports you to familiar yet uncharted territory.  Inspired by artists like Mahalia Jackson, Ella Fitzgerald, Cat Power, and Tom Waits, her 2019 debut EP Doula blends elements of folk, blues, and trip-hop with a flare for the experimental. In October 2023 she released her debut full length album, Dust. "Carter's lyrical dexterity and penchant for dark, almost Appalachian folk make for a gothic, gorgeous and vulnerable record,” writes Seven Days.

2024 City Hall Park programming is underwritten by the Pomerleau Family Foundation and the WaterWheel Foundation. Media sponsor, Seven Days. BTV Market has support from Lake Champlain Chocolates and The Friendly Toast.
