Tarrytown Music Hall
The acclaimed songwriters (and longtime friends) 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. 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 2012. Ashes and Roses, the new album from Carpenter, was released in June 2012 by Zoë/Rounder. Shawn Colvin has won three Grammy Awards, including two for the hit single ‘Sunny Came Home’, and has been nominated for another seven. In June, Colvin released her eighth studio album, All Fall Down. The album’s release coincided with the publication of Shawn’s memoir, Diamond In The Rough, which looks back over a rich lifetime of highs and lows with stunning insight and candor.
