Mary Chapin Carpenter
Five-time Grammy award winner Mary Chapin Carpenter will headline a special concert benefitting the Espanola Valley Humane Society .
The concert, with special guest Aoife O’Donovan, is 7 p.m., April 1 at the Lensic in Santa Fe.
Proceeds will go to the EVHS, whose aggressive spay and neuter and community outreach programs are slowly decreasing the number of unwanted animals brought to the shelter from 4,480 in 2005 to 3,215 last year. Seventy-four percent of those were placed in loving homes, thanks to record-breaking efforts at shelter adoption events.
A popular country music singer and songwriter, Carpenter has won five Grammy Awards with hits like “Passionate Kisses” and “He Thinks He’ll Keep Her.” O’Donovan is a songwriter and folk-pop solo artist.
