Shawn Colvin

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.
