Mary Chapin Carpenter

Five time Grammy Award winner Mary Chapin Carpenter to perform at DPAC on Sunday, July 18th, 2010. She will be joined by special guest Garrison Starr.
For over 20 years, Mary Chapin Carpenter has chosen her own path. Her music has been described as folk, Americana and singer-songwriter. From her first gigs as a rising star on Washington DC’s folk scene in the early 1980s, she has made a reputation as both a singer and prolific songwriter. She has released eleven albums, resulting in five Grammy Awards and over 13 million records sold. She has scored 12 top 10 singles, including Grammy nominated “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” for a Record of the Year. Carpenter has achieved the same success as a live performer, having toured nationally and internationally and winning two Pollstar Country Tour of the Year awards.
On April 27, Mary Chapin Carpenter returns with a new album, The Age Of Miracles, the follow up to 2007’s The Calling. The album is her twelfth overall. The Age Of Miracles offers guest vocals by Vince Gill (on the track “I Put My Ring Back On”) and Alison Krauss on (“I Was a Bird.”)
The album was produced by Carpenter and long-time collaborator Matt Rollings (Lyle Lovett, Keith Urban) and was recorded and mixed by Chuck Ainlay (Mark Knopfler, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson). Joining Carpenter in the studio were Matt Rollings (piano, B-3 organ), Russ Kunkel (drums), Duke Levine (electric and acoustic guitar), Glenn Worf (bass), Dan Dugmore (steel and 12 string guitar) and Eric Darken (percussion).
