Five-time Grammy winner Mary Chapin Carpenter will blend old favorites like “Passionate Kisses” and “I Feel Lucky” with new tunes when she performs Oct. 20 at the State Theatre, 404 S. Burdick.

Carpenter is touring to support her latest album, The Things That We Are Made Of. She was part of a small movement of folk-influenced country singers/songwriters of the late 1980s and channeled her anti-Nashville approach into chart success and industry awards. She has recorded 14 albums and sold more than 14 million records.

The show begins at 8 p.m. with special guest Australian singer and songwriter Emily Barker.

Tickets are $39.50—$75 and are available at kazoostate.com.
