And the Rain Came Tumblin' Down...

After all of the activities of Fort Days, we were exhausted.  Even though we had been on our feet all weekend and our voices were raw from talking to customers all day, William and I could not pass up the opportunity to see Mary Chapin Carpenter and Shawn Colvin at the Palace Theater in Greensburg.  The duo performed a "living room style" concert with just their voices and their guitars.  In between some of their biggest hits and new music from recently released albums, they bantered back and forth the way good friends do.  They joked, told anecdotes and their friendship felt real.  It didn't feel forced or fake.  It felt as though you were a guest in their living room and they were going to share some tunes and some stories.  It was refreshing and a little surprising, how similar their voices in concert sounded to their recordings.  All too often we've been disappointed with how other artists can sound so different in their live performances from their digitally remastered tracks.  So we basked in their talent and the beauty of their voices and playing.

We both agreed that the show was excellent and the perfect way to end a busy weekend.
