I was lucky enough to get a ticket to see Mary Chapin Carpenter, thanks to my friend, Gerry. It was a beautiful Saturday night. Joan Baez, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and the Indigo Girls (Amy Ray and Emily Saliers) performed as Four Voices. The venue was Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Pops, in the beautiful Berkshire mountains of Western Massachusetts.
They included songs that each is known for, performing some together, others were sung solo, and in yet others, one would take the lead with the verses and the others would join in chorus harmonies.
The following is the set list with some comments.
Don’t Think Twice
Get Out the Map
Stones In the Road ( MCC changed the lyric from “we doctor the receipt” to “we send another tweet”)
Another World (Joan Baez)
Diamonds and Rust (Joan Baez, MCC) (“50 years ago” plus afterwards Joan commented “I’ll take the diamonds”)
The Age of Miracles
Shame On You
Train Inside performed by Emily Saliers. This song is on her upcoming first solo album, Murmuration Nation which is coming out on August 11.
Nasty Man (Joan Baez)
The Things That We Are Made Of(MCC) (from Joan’s reaction afterwards, it was apparently the first time Chapin had added this song in the set – and was well appreciated)
Closer To Fine
Great Correction Eliza Gilykson
Share the Moon (Indigo Girls)
Last Leaf on The Tree Tom Waits
The Hard Way
Times Are A Changin’
*Encore* Water Is Wide
*Encore* Night They Drove Old Dixie Down

Over & Out,
