Mary Chapin Carpenter returns to the Center with her full band!

Opening Act: Australian singer-songwriter Emily Barker

Five-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter and Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, Mary Chapin Carpenter returns to the North Shore Center with her full band configuration. Carpenter is hitting the road to perform songs from her expansive fourteen-album catalog and new songs from her latest record, The Things That We Are Made Of.

Produced by 2016 Producer of the Year Grammy-nominee Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton), the album features eleven new songs written by Carpenter, and has received critical acclaim from NPR and Rolling Stone, among others. The Associated Press calls it, “…an evocative collection of songs,” while The Huffington Post declares, “…Carpenter is now at the height of her musical career, painting a compelling, relevant piece of art tinged with mixed feelings of grief and joy, all without preaching or darkening our minds with sadness.”

Beloved by fans and critics alike, Carpenter has recorded fourteen albums and sold over 14 million records. Previously, in 2014, Carpenter released her debut orchestral album, Songs From The Movie, which was arranged and co-produced by six-time Grammy winner Vince Mendoza. Since its 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.


Opening Act: Australian singer-songwriter Emily Barker

Emily Barker is best known as the writer and performer of the award-winning theme to the hit PBS Masterpiece drama Wallander
starring Kenneth Branagh. Growing up in rural Western Australia, Barker fell in love with American music from the soul of Aretha Franklin to the country of Gillian Welch and Emmylou Harris. Her travels led her to settling in the UK, where she has released a succession of critically acclaimed albums, including Nashville-recorded Applewood Road with Amy Speace and Amber Rubarth.

Her new solo album Sweet Kind of Blue was recorded at Sam Phillips Recording Service in Memphis with Grammy winning producer Matt Ross-Spang (Margo Price, Jason Isbell, Mary Chapin Carpenter). From country-soul ballads to the unfettered joy of the bluesy ‘Sunrise’, the album has been lauded as Barker’s best yet and features contributions from some of Memphis’ finest musicians.
