Shawn Colvin and Steve Earle at London's Union Chapel Monday 13th & Wednesday 15th June 2016 *Only UK Shows!
Shawn Colvin and Steve Earle both remember the night they met. It was nearly 30 years ago, and Colvin had been invited to open a solo acoustic performance by Earle at the Iron Horse in Northampton, MA. Though their interactions that night were limited to some cursory dressing room pleasantries, each left more of an impression on the other than they may have realized at the time.
"I was knocked out with her," says Earle. "She was a real live folk singer." "I was a big fan, still am, and I was thrilled I got to meet him," reflects Colvin. "Steve's just brilliant. He's a very simple writer in an extremely profound way. I love his singing and his songwriting, he's just got the whole package."
Anyone in the audience that night could have sensed the critical acclaim, Grammy Awards, and immense impact on popular music that awaited both artists, each already well on their way to becoming widely considered among America's greatest living songwriters.
Earle, who has toured with his full band in recent years, discovered a special chemistry that was unlocked when his voice met Colvin's over acoustic guitars and mandolin whilst previously on the road together. The long time friends and admirers have now reunited to record their self-titled debut as 'Colvin & Earle', and will be coming to London's Union Chapel for two exclusive shows following the release. This rare chance to see these two folk music legends in the magical atmosphere of the Union Chapel promises to be very special indeed.
Their album 'Colvin & Earle' is released on June 10
