The weather was Cool with slight rain but who cares it was an indoor event.. I wore Jeans shirt and casual shoes. Wear comfortable shoes, you might be stuck standing the whole time.

Amazing voice as always...and when she talks, it is so clear to see what a poet's spirit she has. The venue was great as well - felt cozy and intimate.

What a treat to see Mary Chapin Carpenter in such an intimitae venue. It was a delightful evening and most entertaining.

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

More Information


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.
