    Shawn Colvin Performs on NPR's "World Cafe"; iVillage Celebrates Release of Her New Album with Martin Guitar Giveaway
    Michael Wilson

    Shawn Colvin is the guest on NPR's World Cafe today. She talks about her memoir, Diamond in the Rough, and performs songs from her new album, All Fall Down. The music was recorded live at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia shortly after the album's release on Nonesuch Records in June. Joining Colvin for the performance are her longtime friend and cohort Buddy Miller, who produced the album, and bassist Viktor Krauss, who also performs on the album. Tune in today on your local NPR member station and online at npr.org.

    To further celebrate the release of All Fall Down, iVillage is giving one lucky reader in the US a beautiful Martin 000-15M Mahogany Dreadnought Guitar, valued at $1,499, along with a hardshell case. There is no purchase necessary to win. To read more about the offer and enter to win, head to ivillage.com today.

    A collection of 11 songs—eight written or co-written by Colvin—All Fall Down is her eighth studio album and the first to be produced by Miller. Recorded in Nashville, All Fall Down features performances by Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Jakob Dylan, Bill Frisell, Viktor Krauss, Brian Blade, Stuart Duncan, and Julie Miller, among others. The Boston Globe calls the album "superb."

    Colvin continues her summer tour, featuring songs from the album and favorites from throughout her storied career, with two concerts at The Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside DC, next Thursday, June 19, and Friday, June 20. For additional details on these and other upcoming shows, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.
