“Quietly spellbinding… the music of Ms. Carpenter is an unclassifiable hybrid of pop, folk and country.”—The New York Times
“Cohn has one of rock’s most soulful croons—a rich immediately recognizable tenor that makes these songs his own.”—Rolling Stone
Acclaimed songwriters Mary Chapin Carpenter and Marc Cohn will share the stage for a series of special shows this summer. The duo will perform material spanning their vast catalogs as well as some of their favorite songs.
2012 and 2013 have been landmark years for Carpenter. In addition to releasing her latest album, Ashes and Roses, to widespread critical acclaim, she was recently inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and won an Emmy award for her work on Nashville Public Television’s “No Going Back: Women and the War.”Over the course of her career, Carpenter has recorded 12 albums and has sold over 13 million records. With hits like “Passionate Kisses” and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” she has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations), two CMA awards and two Academy of Country Music awards for her vocals. Her songs speak to the most personal of life’s details and the most universal.
With his Grammy-award winning ballad “Walking in Memphis,” Cohn is one of his generation’s most compelling singer/songwriters. Of Cohn, Bonnie Raitt declares, “Marc is one of the most soulful, talented artists I know. I love his songs,he’s an incredible singer, and I marvel at his ability to mesmerize every audience he plays for.” After taking a decade-long sabbatical, Cohn returned in 2007 with Join The Parade. Inspired by the events following Hurricane Katrina and his own near fatal shooting just weeks before, Parade is his most moving and critically acclaimed record to date. His most recent album, Listening Booth: 1970, was released in 2013. Of the record, Rolling Stone praises, “Cohn has one of rock’s most soulful croons – a rich, immediately recognizable tenor that makes these songs his own.”
