Rockland — Tickets are on sale now for acclaimed singer-songwriter Mary Chapin Carpenter’s “One Night Lonely,” a livestream concert broadcast from her favorite venue, Virginia’s legendary Wolf Trap, on Friday, Nov. 27, at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the Strand Theatre website: RocklandStrand.com.

The special event will remain available to view throughout Thanksgiving weekend and will also be later released as a live album. Additionally, in this season of giving, fans will have the option to add a donation for World Central Kitchen to their ticket fee.

Of the performance, Carpenter shares, “Strange yet magical, those are my words to describe how I expect it to feel being alone on this hometown stage at Wolf Trap. I imagine the stillness of the empty seats and the lonely echo of all this space. I miss seeing the audience and feeling that connection, I am grateful for the opportunity to play a solo show, which I haven’t done for a very long time. As we enter the holiday season, so many of us are apart from the ones we love. I hope this concert—which will include songs from my first record to my most recent release—will bring us a little closer, until we can gather again, shoulder to shoulder, celebrating live music once more. The fact that this new performance comes 25 years after the release of my live special, Jubilee: Live from Wolf Trap, only makes the occasion sweeter.”

The concert celebrates the release of Carpenter’s widely hailed new album, “The Dirt And The Stars.” Produced by Ethan Johns (Ray LaMontagne, Paul McCartney, Kings of Leon) the album was recorded live at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in Bath, England, and was released to widespread critical praise. Carpenter has received five Grammy Awards, and in 2012 was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Tickets for the livestream concert are $20. For tickets or more information, visit RocklandStrand.com. The Strand Theatre is located at 345 Main St. and staff can be reached by email at info@rocklandstrand.com or by phone at (207) 594-0070.
