Grammy Winners Colvin and Cohn Share the Stage

Two of this generation's favorite singer-songwriters, Marc Cohn and Shawn Colvin, come together onstage for a special evening at the Wachholz College Center on the campus of Flathead Valley Community College on Sunday, April 2.

Cohn, a Grammy Award winner for his soulful ballad "Walking in Memphis," and Colvin, winner of the Grammy Award's Record of the Year and Song of the Year for “Sunny Came Home,”welcome fans into their decades-long friendship for a night of songs and stories.

About Shawn Colvin:

Shawn Colvin won her first Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album with her debut album “Steady On.” She has been a mainstay of the singer-songwriter genre ever since, releasing 13 albums and establishing herself as one of America’s most revered live performers. Her songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis. Colvin was recognized for her career accomplishments when she was honored with the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award by the Americana Music Association. Presenting the award was Bonnie Raitt. Raitt said, “She’s simply one of the best singers I’ve ever heard — and a truly gifted and deep songwriter and guitarist.” Colvin was also inducted into the 2019 Austin City Limits Hall of Fame, alongside legendary artists Lyle Lovett and Buddy Guy. In a moving induction speech, Jackson Browne said “Not many writers are able to do what Shawn does. It’s a very special way of relating what really matters. It takes an original to get our attention. Shawn is utterly original in her singing, and original in what she speaks about in her songs.”

About Marc Cohn:

After winning a Grammy, Cohn solidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer-songwriters, combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. Rooted in the rich ground of American rhythm and blues, soul and gospel and possessed of a deft storyteller’s pen, he weaves vivid, detailed, often drawn-from-life tales that evoke some of the most universal human feelings: love, hope, faith, joy, heartbreak.
