Contemporary folk artist Shawn Colvin will be in concert on Friday, March 29, 2019 at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. Colvin won her first GRAMMY Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album with her debut album, “Steady On”, in 1989. She’s been a mainstay of the contemporary folk music scene ever since, releasing twelve superlative albums and establishing herself as one of America’s greatest live performers. She triumphed at the 1998 GRAMMY Awards, winning both Record and Song of the Year for “Sunny Came Home”. Her inspiring and candid memoir, “Diamond In The Rough”, was published in 2012. With the wit, lyricism, and empathy that characterize Shawn’s performances, “Diamond in the Rough” looks back over a rich lifetime of highs and lows with stunning insight and candor.
Shawn’s most recent solo endeavor, “Uncovered”, is the long-awaited follow up to fan-favorite “Cover Girl”. “Uncovered” includes masterful interpretations of songs by Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Tom Waits, Stevie Wonder, Graham Nash, and more. Colvin’s latest release is “The Starlighter” (Amazon Music), a new album of songs adapted from the children’s music book “Lullabies and Night Songs”. “The Starlighters’s” 14 tracks are a mix of traditional numbers and children’s standards, an elegant and graceful collection for listeners of all ages.
