Legendary singer-songwriters Shawn Colvin and Steve Earle are playing the Keswick Theatre on Saturday, March 29th. Shawn Colvin & Steve Earle: Songs and Stories, Together Onstage will feature the musicians performing songs that cover their extensive careers as two of the most influential contemporary singer-songwriters.
Both musicians began their careers with genre defining debut albums. Colvin released her Grammy award winning Steady On in 1989, setting a new musical benchmark for the singer-songwriter genre that nodded to the tradition of Joni Mitchell and James Taylor, and is seen as key release that triggered the singer-songwriter revival of the Nineties. Earle released Guitar Town in 1986, which became a number one Billboard Country album and became one of the musical blueprints for the alternative country movement. Below, sample a song from each of the albums.
