SALINA – Singer Shawn Colvin will perform at the Stiefel Theatre for the Performing Arts this weekend.
Colvin brings her ‘A Few Small Repairs 20th Anniversary Tour’ to Salina this Sunday at 7:30 p.m. Good seats are still available for this fantastic show.
In an era when female singer-songwriters are ever more ubiquitous, 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 warmhearted, 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 won three Grammy Awards, released eleven albums, written a critically acclaimed memoir, maintained a non-stop national and international touring schedule, appeared on countless television and radio programs, had her songs featured in major motion pictures, and created a remarkable canon of work.
This fall, Shawn Colvin will hit the road with the A Few Small Repairs 20th Anniversary Tour. Her first major tour with a full band since the album’s original release, the seven-week cross-country jaunt runs from September 30 through November 19 and will showcase Shawn performing the album in its entirety alongside a variety of hits, personal favorites and surprises from her repertoire. Multi-instrumentalist-singer Larry Campbell and his wife singer-guitarist Teresa Williams will support all dates in addition to appearing in the band.
By the time that A Few Small Repairs and “Sunny Came Home” catapulted her into the pop mainstream Shawn Colvin was already a well-established recording artist and touring performer with a resume of accolades. Her 1989 John-Leventhal-produced debut, Steady On, had taken home the Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album and subsequent releases Fat City (1992) and Cover Girl (1994) each multiple-categories nominees.
