MARY CHAPIN CARPENTER CONFIRMS SUMMER TOUR DATES

INCLUDES PERFORMANCES WITH LUCINDA WILLIAMS, SARAH JAROSZ, JOAN BAEZ, INDIGO GIRLS’ AMY RAY & EMILY SALIERS AND MORE

Mary Chapin Carpenter will embark on a series of headline shows this summer, including newly announced concerts at Denver’s Botanic Gardens, Boulder’s Chautauqua Auditorium, Kansas City’s Muriel Kauffman Theatre, Des Moines’ Hoyt Sherman Place and Charleston, SC’s Charleston Music Hall.

The headline shows follow a run of special dates with Joan Baez and the Indigo GirlsAmy Ray and Emily Saliers. The “Four Voices Tour” will include two nights at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium as well as stops at Chicago’s Chicago Theatre and Toronto’s Massey Hall.

Additionally, this spring, Carpenter will perform select dates as part of the “Transatlantic Session America Tour Spring 2017.” The concerts at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre and NYC’s Town Hall will feature Carpenter along with Rosanne Cash, John Paul White and Aoife O’Donovan among others.

Lastly, on August 12, Carpenter will return to Wolf Trap for a special concert celebrating 30 years since she began recording and releasing music. Very special guest Lucinda Williams, who wrote “Passionate Kisses,” which Carpenter later recorded, will open the milestone anniversary performance. Tickets go on-sale Saturday, March 18 at 10:00am ET. Additional events celebrating the 30th anniversary year will be announced shortly.

The 2017 performances will feature material from throughout Carpenter’s acclaimed career, including songs from her most recent album, The Things That We Are Made Of. Released last year to widespread acclaim on Lambent Light Records via Thirty Tigers (webstore, iTunes, Amazon), the album was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton) and features eleven new songs written by Carpenter.

The Associated Press calls it, “…an evocative collection of songs,” while The Huffington Post declares, “…Carpenter is now at the height of her musical career, painting a compelling, relevant piece of art tinged with mixed feelings of grief and joy, all without preaching or darkening our minds with sadness.” Additionally, NPR Music featured the album in their “First Listen” series.

Most recently, Carpenter collaborated with Peter Wolf for a special duet of “Cry No More.” Their rendition of the song is featured on Amazon’s Valentine’s Day playlist. Listen here.

Over the course of her career, Carpenter has recorded 14 albums and sold over 14 million records. Beloved by fans and critics alike, she has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations) and is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Previously, in 2014, Carpenter released her debut orchestral album, Songs From The Movie, which was arranged and co-produced by six-time Grammy winner Vince Mendoza. Since it’s release, Carpenter has performed alongside the New York Philharmonic, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the London Concert Orchestra, the L.A. Philharmonic and the National Symphony Orchestra among many others.
