With her inimitable voice and matchless guitar stylings, three-time Grammy Award winner Shawn Colvin stands out as a singular and enduring talent. Her songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners. Now, she is ready to show you what makes her standout when she performs at the Germantown Performing Arts Center on Friday, March 1st!
As a storyteller, Colvin is both keen and warm-hearted, leavening even the toughest tales with tenderness, empathy, and a searing sense of humor. In the 27 years since the release of her debut album, Colvin has written a critically acclaimed memoir, maintained a non-stop national and international touring schedule, and created a remarkable canon of work. Shawn Colvin’s latest release is The Starlighter, a new album of songs adapted from the children’s music book “Lullabies and Night Songs.” The Starlighters’s 14 songs are a mix of traditional numbers and children’s standards, an elegant and graceful musical offering that resonates with the warmth and tenderness of poignant familial experience and remembrance.
Colvin was recently recognized for her career accomplishments when she was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award at the 2016 Americana Honors & Awards Show. Presenting Colvin with this prestigious award was Bonnie Raitt. Raitt said, “She’s simply one of the best singers I’ve ever heard— and a truly gifted and deep songwriter and guitarist. She was groundbreaking when she emerged and continues to inspire me and the legions of fans and other songwriters coming up in her wake.”
During this special concert, local favorites Amy LaVere and Will Sexton will open the show. Germantown Performing Arts Center is a multidisciplinary performing arts facility whose mission is to serve the community by presenting the highest quality artistic endeavors to educate, engage, enrich and transform.
