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 catalogues as well as some of their favorite songs, tomorrow at the Ridgefield Playhouse!
Mary Chapin Carpenter is known for her blend of pop, folk and country style music. 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. 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.”
Marc Cohn is best know for his Grammy-award winning ballad “Walking in Memphis,” and is one of his generation’s most compelling singer/songwriters. 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.”
