For the first time ever, award-winning singer-songwriters Mary Chapin Carpenter and Shawn Colvin are touring together, for a once-in-a-lifetime concert event at Edmonds Center for the Arts on Friday May 11 at 7:30 p.m.

Mary Chapin Carpenter has won five Grammy Awards, recorded 12 albums and has sold over 13 million records.

By combining folk, country, acoustic, rock and blues, Mary Chapin has proven to be an artist for whom the conventional boundaries of music disappear; she has always professed a love for all kinds of music, and those influences come together in her songs that speak to the most personal of life’s details.

Carpenter was recently honored with The Americana Association's esteemed “Spirit of Americana Free Speech in Music Award”, which recognizes artists who have used their work to raise awareness and promote free speech. Mary Chapin’s new album “Ashes and Roses” will be released on June 12.

Shawn Colvin has won three Grammy Awards, released nine albums, maintained a non-stop touring schedule, appeared on countless television and radio programs, had her songs featured in major motion pictures, and created a remarkable canon of work.

Her songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners.

On June 5, Shawn will release both her new album “All Fall Down” and her memoir “Diamond in the Rough.”

Friends for over 20 years, this is the first time that Mary Chapin and Shawn are touring together, sharing the stage in an intimate evening of storytelling and music.

These acclaimed songwriters will perform as an intimate duo and will include material spanning their vast catalogues as well as some of their favorite songs.
