Beloved singer/songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter has called the Washington area home for nearly 30 years, and her performances at Wolf Trap have become a beloved tradition for audiences. Best known for her hits “Passionate Kisses,” “Down at the Twist and Shout,” “I Feel Lucky,” and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her,” Carpenter returns to the Filene Center stage for an evening of classic Americana tunes.

The evening begins with a performance by California folk-rock band Dawes, who bring their breezy and emotional songs back to Wolf Trap audiences.
