Long-time friends Lyle Lovett and Shawn Colvin come together on the Warner Main Stage on Friday, March 2 at 8 pm for one incredible acoustic evening of music as these two master performers and songwriters share songs and stories.
A singer, composer and actor, Lyle Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums and has earned him four GRAMMY Awards, among his many other accolades including the Americana Music Association’s Trailblazer Award. His works, rich and eclectic, are some of the most beloved of any artist working today. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Lovett’s live performances show not only the breadth of this legend’s deep talents, but also the diversity of his influences, making him one of the most compelling and captivating musicians in popular music.
Singer, songwriter and author Shawn Colvin won her first GRAMMY Award with her debut album, Steady On. She has been a mainstay of the singer-songwriter genre ever since, releasing eleven superlative albums and establishing herself as one of America’s greatest live performers. She triumphed at the 1998 GRAMMY Awards, winning both Record and Song of the Year for “Sunny Came Home.” Shawn was recognized for her career accomplishments when she was honored with the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award in 2016. Her forthcoming album, The Starlighter, will be released on Amazon Music on February 23rd, 2018. The Starlighter features Shawn’s tender renditions of traditional and standard children’s lullabies. The result is an album that captures the magic and mystery of children’s songs while also offering a moving and timeless musical experience.
