Mary Chapin Carpenter

Five-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee Mary Chapin Carpenter hits the road in 2016, performing timeless hits from her expansive and beloved 14-album catalog and new songs from her upcoming record The Things That We Are Made Of  (May 6, Lambent Light Records). 

Produced by 2016 Producer of the Year Grammy-nominee Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton), the album features eleven new songs written by Carpenter, including the lead track “Something Tamed Something Wild,” which can be heard at Rolling Stonewho praises, 

“...Something Tamed Something Wild’ and indeed the entire new album finds the songwriter at her most thoughtful and also at times sweetly whimsical, perfectly capturing the buoyant spirit of her early successes and also serving as a reminder that she remains one of the most grounded, sentient songwriters of her generation.”

Over the course of her acclaimed career, Carpenter has recorded 14 albums and sold over 14 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, two Academy of Country Music awards for her vocals and is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Most recently, in 2014, Carpenter released her acclaimed debut orchestral album, Songs From The Movie. Arranged and co-produced by six-time Grammy winner Vince Mendoza, the record is comprised of ten previously recorded compositions including “Between Here and Gone” and “Come On Come On.” 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.

BBC Folk Award winner Bella Hardy creates twisted tales that touch on both the fantastical elements of Kate Bush, and the lovelorn songwriting craft of Carole King. Presenting folk songs in the best tradition; not as antiquated museum pieces, but as relevant and very human artworks, Hardy's fine fiddling and mesmerising voice have propelled her to the vanguard of British folk music. “...unveiled, committed, persuasive, passionate, empowering and utterly wonderful.” (Colin Irwin, fRoots).
