We wanted to wish everyone a very happy holiday season and to thank you all for your ongoing support. With the releases of her record and book, All Fall Down and Diamond in the Rough, it was an exciting year for Shawn—one in which she had the wonderful opportunity to catch up with so many of you, reacquaint with friends at radio, talk to some great writers and bloggers and make a video that included gorillas on unicycles. Who could ask for more?!
And 2013 is already shaping up to be another great year!
Those who have hoped to catch Shawn performing with her good friend Mary Chapin Carpenter will be excited to learn that the pair will set out again for more of their duo shows this February, April, and May. The longtime friends will once again share the stage as an intimate duo, performing material from their vast catalogs as well as some of their favorite songs. The first handful of shows have just been posted to the tour page; check back there and on Facebook for more dates to come! And through Music One Live, you can now upgrade your concert experience with several packages that include a premium reserved seat, a pre-show Meet & Greet with Mary Chapin and Shawn, autographed tour poster, limited tote bag, VIP laminate and more. If you have already bought your ticket, you can upgrade into one of these packages as well. For every show where these packages are offered they will go on sale at the same time as the normal ticketing. Quantities are limited. To purchase or get more details, click here.
Shawn is also fulfilling her wish to return to Australia after many years of being away. She'll head down under for four shows in March—including two performances at the renowned Byron Bay Bluesfest. Also upcoming are her annual residencies at Yoshi's in San Francisco and The Dakota in Minneapolis, always a treat. Shawn Colvin Live was recorded at Yoshi's, and the venue holds a special place in everyone's heart.
You can stay up-to-date with Shawn's news and tour dates here and on her Facebook page. She's also got a pretty great Twitter thing going on.
And to get you in the holiday spirit, Nonesuch Records has got a big sale going on through the holidays: 34% off the standard retail price on CDs and more, including Shawn's complete Nonesuch CD catalog at nonesuch.com/store. That's about 20% off the everyday prices listed on the site. (The sale discount is shown at checkout.)
Lots of love from all at Colvin HQ and ...
