I’m just back from a fabulous Mary Chapin Carpenter in Durham. She’s son wonderful and had an amazing back-up band, including Chapel Hill’s own Don Dixon. She sang for two hours staight and I could have listened another two. If you don’t know Mary Chapin’s music, you will find her on the web.
One great surpirse was Garrison Starr, a female musician who opened for Mary Chapin. Garrison, a Mississippi native, is now based in Los Angeles. Check out her music on Facebook or here: http://www.voiceproject.org/index.php?id=145785486.
