    Shawn Colvin's Tour and "Superb" New Album Find Her in "Sterling Voice," Says Boston Globe

    Shawn Colvin kicked off her summer tour of the United States at the Somerville Theatre outside of Boston last week. The concert found Colvin in "sterling voice," reports the Boston Globe, with a strong connection between her and her fans on full display.

    The concert, featuring songs from Colvin's new album, All Fall Down, which Boston Globe music writer Sarah Rodman describes as "superb," "drew rapturous ovations," Rodman reports. The review cites "the power of her musical connection to her audience ... and the sterling quality of her voice." Noting that the audience was there "for the singer and songwriter of tunes of self-searching questions, compassion, humor, and sweet melody," Rodman finds that "Colvin delivered all of the above with perfect pitch and quiet charm."

    Shawn Colvin's US tour continues along the East Coast through the end of the week, with performances at Prescott Park in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, tonight; the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center in New York on Friday; and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia on Saturday. Colvin heads to Virginia for two shows at The Birchmere in Alexandria and a set at the Shenandoah Valley Music Festival in Orkney Springs next month. As noted earlier this week in the Nonesuch Journal, tickets for Shawn Colvin's duo tour with Mary Chapin Carpenter of the UK and Ireland go on sale tomorrow.
