The weather was warm. I wore jeans.

The Grove is a challenging space to play in, and seating is uncomfortable since dinner tables are set up so that you end up sitting perpendicular to the stage. Certainly you can move your chair, but if it's a full house, it is hard to maneuver so that you are not blocking people.

I really enjoyed this event. The warm up band, The Honeymoon was great and Mary Chapin Carpenter was really on her game. I didn't give it 5 stars because there was one song I waited all night to hear and she didn't play it--other than that I had...continued

Description

A combination of country, folk, rock, and blues, Mary Chapin Carpenter music defies easy categorization. The singer herself has been compared to other indefinable artists such as Rosanne Cash, Nanci Griffith, and the Indigo Girls, but her sound and lyrics are distinctly her own. Although Carpenter has been embraced by the country music world, listeners from all backgrounds have found meaning in her depictions of the unheralded triumphs and failures of day-to-day life. 

The 1989 album State of the Heart offered four Top 20 hits, including “Never Had It So Good” and “Quittin’ Time.” She followed it with the eloquent 1990 album Shooting Straight in the Dark, which featured the breezy hit “Down at the Twist and Shout.” However, her career came to its commercial high in 1992 when Come On Come On sold 5 million copies and earned her the CMA female vocalist trophy in 1992 and 1993. Carpenter has won five Grammy Awards, and is the only artist to have won four consecutive Grammy Awards for Best Female Country Vocal Performance, which she received from 1992 to 1995.
