Acclaimed songwriters (and longtime friends) Mary Chapin Carpenter & Shawn Colvin share the stage as an intimate duo, performing material spanning their vast catalogues as well as some of their favorite songs.
Mary Chapin Carpenter has recorded 12 albums and has sold over 13 million records. With hits like ‘Passionate Kisses’ and ‘He Thinks He’ll Keep Her’, Carpenter has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations), two CMA awards, two Academy of Country Music awards for her vocals and was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in October of 2012. Her songs speak to the most personal of life’s details and the most universal. Ashes and Roses, the new album from Carpenter, was released June 12, 2012 by Zoë/Rounder. This is Carpenter’s twelfth studio album and features a special duet with James Taylor on the track ‘Soul Companion’.
Shawn Colvin has won three Grammy Awards, including two for the hit single ‘Sunny Came Home’, and has been nominated for another seven. She has released 10 albums, maintained a non-stop touring schedule, appeared on countless television and radio programs, had her songs featured in major motion pictures and created a remarkable canon of work. Her songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners. In June, Colvin released her eighth studio album, All Fall Down. Recorded in Nashville and produced by her longtime friend and occasional bandmate Buddy Miller (Robert Plant, Solomon Burke), it features a group of stellar musicians, including Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Bill Frisell and Jakob Dylan, among others.
