Mary Chapin Carpenter

Mary Chapin Carpenter offers a snapshot of her life on her latest release, the critically acclaimed The Age of Miracles, which she calls a personal exploration of regret and resilience. The Age of Miracles is the twelfth studio album from the five-time Grammy award-winning Carpenter, including one Grammy-winning and two Grammy-nominated albums. Carpenter was born in Princeton, N.J. in 1958 and lived in Japan from 1969 to 1971 before moving to Washington, D.C. Carpenter’s early musical loves included The Mamas & The Papas, Woody Guthrie, The Beatles and Jujdy Collins. Carpenter grew up playing the guitar and between college years at Brown University she would play local bars and clubs in the Washington, D.C. area.

Recently, Carpenter was 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. Here is a recent review of one of Carpenter’s performances at the Allen Room as part of Lincoln Center’s American Songbook Series.
