Multiple GRAMMY® Award-winner Shawn Colvin—with 13 superlative albums, a critically acclaimed memoir, and a non-stop national and international touring schedule—teams up with Grammy-nominated Scottish musician and captivating performer and songwriter KT Tunstall—who balances introspective folk and energetic rock. The raw and soulful music of both Shawn Colvin and KT Tunstall is a profound source of comfort, offering deep solace and inspiration navigating the ups and downs of life with grace and resilience making for an unforgettable night of music.

Shawn Colvin made a stunning entrance into the music world with her 1989 debut, Steady On, which earned her the GRAMMY® Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. Over the past three decades, Colvin has won three GRAMMY® Awards, released thirteen acclaimed albums, written a riveting memoir, and toured the globe. Her memoir, Diamond in the Rough, offers a poignant glimpse into her life, revealing the resilience and artistry that have shaped her career. Honored with the Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award by the Americana Music Association in 2016, Colvin continues to be a beacon of inspiration in the music industry. Bonnie Raitt’s words encapsulate her impact: “She’s simply one of the best singers I’ve ever heard — and a truly gifted and deep songwriter and guitarist.”

“…extraordinary songs, mesmerising guitar playing, and a voice that goes effortlessly from bruise-tender to scar-hard in a matter of minutes…[Shawn Colvin’s] lyrics are crafted and clever, full of subtlety and polished phrases…With delicious sarcasm and acerbic stories, she held the audience spellbound… her songs are so personal to her that they speak to everyone who listens.” – The Guardian

KT Tunstall burst onto the scene with her 2004 multi-platinum debut album, Eye to the Telescope, featuring global hits like “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree” and “Suddenly I See.” Tunstall’s innovative use of looping technology and her ability to blend introspective folk with energetic rock has made her a standout performer. Her recent trilogy of albums, focusing on the concepts of soul (KIN), body (WAX), and mind (NUT), showcases her evolution as one of the most exciting songwriters of her time. In addition to her musical accomplishments, Tunstall has ventured into musical theatre, currently composing for the adaptation of the cult classic movie Clueless.

Attendees of this event can expect an evening filled with heartfelt melodies, engaging stories, and unforgettable performances. Shawn Colvin’s deeply personal and masterfully crafted songs will resonate with listeners, while KT Tunstall’s dynamic stage presence and innovative soundscapes will captivate and energize. Together, these two artists promise to create a unique and memorable experience, blending their talents in a seamless and soulful concert.
