MARY CHAPIN CARPENTER: ONE NIGHT LONELY
Airs on WOUB Saturday, August 14 at 10 pm
– Acclaimed Singer, Songwriter and Musician in a Rare Solo Performance at Wolf Trap –
In November 2020, acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician Mary Chapin Carpenter performed a special concert in her favorite venue, Virginia’s legendary Wolf Trap. Taped during the pandemic, the one-of-a-kind event featured a rare solo performance by Carpenter to an empty house.
MARY CHAPIN CARPENTER: ONE NIGHT LONELY features songs from throughout her career including her most recent album, The Dirt And The Stars, Carpenter’s first collection of all-new material since 2016’s The Things That We Are Made Of. Over the course of her acclaimed career, Carpenter has sold over 15 million records. With hits like “Passionate Kisses” and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” she has won five Grammy Awards (with 15 nominations), two CMA awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards and is one of only 15 female members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Said Carpenter of the experience: “Strange yet magical, those are my words to describe the feeling of being alone on this hometown stage at Wolf Trap. I was struck by the stillness of the empty seats and the lonely echo of all this space. While I missed seeing the audience and feeling that connection, I was so grateful for the opportunity to play a show during the pandemic shut down.”
