Two of a generation’s favorite singer-songwriters, Marc Cohn and Shawn Colvin, come together onstage for a special event. Cohn, a Grammy Award® winner for his soulful ballad, “Walking in Memphis,” and Colvin, winner of the Grammy Award’s “Record of the Year” and “Song of the Year” for “Sunny Came Home,” welcome fans into their decades-long friendship for an afternoon of songs and stories.
After winning a Grammy for his soulful ballad “Walking in Memphis,” Marc Cohn solidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer-songwriters, combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. Rooted in the rich ground of American rhythm and blues, soul and gospel, and possessed with a deft storyteller’s pen, he weaves vivid, detailed, often drawn-from-life tales that evoke some of our most universal human feelings: love, hope, faith, joy, heartbreak.
Shawn Colvin won her first Grammy Award® for “Best Contemporary Folk Album” with her debut album, Steady On. She has been a mainstay of the singer-songwriter genre ever since, releasing 13 superlative albums and establishing herself as one of America’s most revered live performers. Her songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners. Colvin triumphed at the 1998 Grammy Awards, winning both “Record of the Year” and “Song of the Year” for “Sunny Came Home.” The Steady On 30th Anniversary Acoustic Edition strips each song to the core, placing Colvin’s songwriting masterclass on full display.
Colvin was honored with the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award by the Americana Music Association. She was inducted into the 2019 Austin City Limits Hall of Fame alongside legendary artists Lyle Lovett and Buddy Guy. In a moving induction speech, Jackson Browne extolled, “It takes an original to get our attention. Shawn is utterly original in her singing and original in what she speaks about in her songs.”
