Shawn Colvin Celtic Connections 2018 review and photographs Pauline Keightley
Shawn Colvin, is a Grammy award-winning American singer-songwriter, best known for her song ‘Sunny Came Home’.
The concert at Celtic Connections was opened with a welcoming and accomplished duo from Colvin’s band, Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams.
Colvin is celebrating 20 years since the success of her ‘Few Small Repairs’ album and the re-release of a newly expanded album edition, with a full band concert.
At the concert she performed ‘Mona Lisa’, ‘Simple Truth’, ‘Wichita Skyline’, ‘Nothin On Me’, ‘Suicide Alley’ ‘New Thing Now’ and ‘I’ll Be Back.’ She stripped it back to only her voice and piano on a couple of songs. Encouraged by audience applause, she sang a four songs encore.
Her sound elegantly mixes country and contemporary. Colvin is a subtle songstress with immersive, sensitive songs and voice.
A Few Small Repairs SONGS: Sunny Came Home, Get Out of This House, The Facts About Jimmy, You and the Mona Lisa, I Want it Back, If I Were Brave, Wichita Skyline, 84,000 Different Delusions, Suicide Alley, What I Get Paid For, New Thing Now, Nothin On Me,
