Carpenter, Cohn and Colvin coming to Troy on Oct. 1
TROY — Mary Chapin Carpenter, Marc Cohn and Shawn Colvin will unite this fall for an extensive new tour, “An Evening with Mary Chapin Carpenter, Marc Cohn and Shawn Colvin: Together in Concert,” with a Troy stop at Troy Savings Bank Music Hall on Friday, Oct. 1, at 8 p.m.
The show will feature the three Grammy award-winning artists on stage together, performing songs and sharing stories. Tickets can be purchased at https://tickets.troymusichall.org/TheatreManager/99/tmEvent/tmEvent31205.html.
With hits like “Passionate Kisses” and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” Carpenter has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations), two CMA awards, two ACM Awards and is one of only 15 female members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Over the course of her acclaimed career, Carpenter has sold over 15 million records. In 2020, Carpenter released two albums—The Dirt And The Stars in August 2020, and One Night Lonely, recorded live without an audience at the legendary Filene Center at Wolf Trap in Virginia during the COVID-19 shutdown—in addition to sharing “Songs From Home,” a virtual concert series which has been viewed over 10 million times.
After winning a Grammy for his soulful ballad “Walking in Memphis,” Cohn solidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer-songwriters, combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. Rooted in the rich ground of American rhythm and blues, soul and gospel and possessed of a deft storyteller’s pen, he weaves vivid, detailed, often drawn-from-life tales that evoke some of our most universal human feelings: love, hope, faith, joy, heartbreak.
Colvin won her first Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album with her debut album, Steady On. She has been a mainstay of the singer-songwriter genre ever since, releasing 13 superlative albums and establishing herself as one of America’s most revered live performers. Her songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners.
