Description: Five-time GRAMMY Award-winning singer-songwriter and Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee Mary Chapin Carpenter hits the road in 2017, performing songs from her expansive 14-album catalog and new songs from her latest record The Things That We Are Made Of, released May 6, 2016. Produced by 2016 Producer of the Year GRAMMY-nominee Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton), the album features 11 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." Sarah Jarosz took home this year’s GRAMMY Awards for Best American Roots Performance and Best Folk Album. A gifted multi-instrumentalist, a singularly expressive vocalist and a songwriter of rare insight, Jarosz has been described by The New York Times as "one of acoustic music's most promising young talents: a singer-songwriter and mandolin and banjo prodigy with the taste and poise to strike that rare balance of commercial and critical success."
