TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: Singer Songwriter Shawn Colvin Brings Her Folk Pop Music to Livermore's Bankhead Theater

Jun 10, 2018
Best known for her Grammy Award winning single, “Sunny Came Home,” singer/songwriter Shawn Colvin will bring her unique storytelling style of folk pop to the Bankhead Theater (2400 First Street) in Livermore, CA. on Thursday evening, June 21. For decades, Colvin has stood out among folk pop musicians for her keen observations and ability to infuse even the toughest of tales with tenderness, empathy and a searing sense of humor.

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 warm-hearted, leavening even the toughest tales with tenderness, empathy, and a searing sense of humor.

“Steady On,” Colvin’s debut album, won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Recording and “A Few Small Repairs” followed a few years later, giving her a Top 10 hit and Grammys for both Song of the Year and Record of the Year. Since then, she has released 11 albums, collaborating with a wide range of artists, written a critically-acclaimed memoir and was honored with the Americana Music Association’s Americana Trailblazer Award in 2016. Through it all, Colvin maintains a busy touring schedule, enchanting fans and winning new listeners with her deeply personal stories in song.

Shawn was recently recognized for her career accomplishments when she was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award at the 2016 Americana Honors & Awards Show. Presenting Colvin with this prestigious award was Bonnie Raitt.
