"'Always personal and never predictable'--Performing Songwriter"
When Shawn Colvin's Polaroids: A Greatest Hits Collection appeared not long ago, it reminded a lot of us how important she's been to the whole concept of what it means to be a singer-songwriter in today's musical world. This South Dakota-born storyteller puts herself under the microscope and then backs off and boils it all down to an irresistible pop hook. It's a rare young songwriter in New England or the Midwest who hasn't tried to imitate Shawn Colvin musically at one time or another, and her honest, introspective spirit has been equally inspiring. Join us for a rare Ark appearance by Shawn Colvin as we look backward and forward at one of new folk music's great careers
