In an era when female singer-songwriters are ever more ubiquitous, 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.
As a storyteller, Colvin is both keen and warm-hearted, leavening even the toughest tales with tenderness, empathy, and a searing sense of humor.
Her memoir is Diamond in the Ruff, and Colvin will be in the listening area this weekend. On Friday June 22nd at the Ridgefield Playhouse in Ridgefield CT, and Sunday June 24th at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock NY.
