For more than three decades, singer-songwriters Mary Chapin Carpenter and Shawn Colvin have enjoyed a musical kinship that has seen them frequently share stages throughout the world. This fall, they will embark on a tour that showcases the duo in intimate acoustic settings, as they trade songs and stories from throughout their respective Grammy-winning careers, highlighting hits and longtime fan favorites.

Having previously toured together in 2013, the two will kick off this latest trek in Kansas City, Missouri, on October 10th, with dates running through mid-December. The previous tour was distinguished by the casual “living room” atmosphere of their performances and with numerous hits on the country and pop charts, respectively, Carpenter and Colvin both have extensive song catalogs from which to choose. Colvin’s 1989 Grammy-winning debut LP, Steady On, which commemorates its 30th anniversary later this year, will be the subject of a newly-recorded, entirely acoustic version of the now-classic collection.

Carpenter’s most recent release, Sometimes Just the Sky, also looks back on her 30-year recording career, with new versions of some of her most loved songs, as well as the newly penned title track. The LP includes updates of tracks originally issued on such albums as Hometown Girl, Stones in the Road and Come On Come On.

Dates of special note on the upcoming tour include a three-night stand at the iconic Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia, and Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.
