Mary Chapin Carpenter will perform with Shawn Colvin Saturday at the Walton Arts Center.

Mary Chapin Carpenter grew up in a household that made her “a lover of music.” Her mother enjoys opera, classical music and folk music. Her dad was a “huge jazz buff,” and her older sisters had all of the Beatles’ records, she says. They had ukuleles, a piano and guitars, and she started playing guitar in second grade.
