Mary Chapin Carpenter

August 16 - 17

Her songs speak to the most personal of life’s details and the most universal. Carpenter will tour this summer in support of her new full-length album, produced by Ethan Johns and recorded at the U.K.’s Real World Studios, which will be released in early summer. The forthcoming project is Carpenter’s first album of new material in five years. Most recently, Carpenter released a new single, “Our Man Walter Cronkite,” which was co-produced by Jamie Mefford (Gregory Alan Isakov, Nathaniel Rateliff) and recorded at Colorado Sound Studios. Of the song, Carpenter shares, “Growing up, Walter Cronkite was in our house Monday through Friday, presenting the news as The Most Trusted Man In America, as he was known in his time. My parents raised us to believe that people in jobs like Cronkite’s told the truth; they raised us to believe in a world that reaches out to those who need help, that does not turn away from those less fortunate, or homeless, or those forced to leave their country because of the threat of violence, poverty and persecution. It’s a different time now. I miss my parents, and I miss Walter Cronkite.”
