Good Morning, Musicologists! We continue now with our celebration of Women’s History Month as we put Shawn Colvin In the Spotlight, but we kick it off early with our ‘Music From Laurel Canyon’ EP!
Here’s today’s line-up:
9:00 a.m. Music From Laurel Canyon: Various Artists
Laurel Canyon was a breeding ground for some of the biggest names in music for two generations. It started in the sixties with bands like The Doors, The Lovin’ Spoonful, and The Mamas and The Papas, John Mayall, and spilled over into the seventies with Linda Ronstadt, The Eagles, Jackson Browne and many more. In addition to those artists, you’ll hear The Monkees, The Beach Boys, Joni Mitchell, Manassas, Bonnie Raitt, John David Souther, Canned Heat, Harry Nilsson, Carole King, James Taylor and more!
7:00 p.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of Shawn Colvin
Shawn Colvin is one of those amazing singer-songwriters who has, somehow, flown under much of the radar out there for many years. She is best known for her 1998 Grammy Award-winning song, Sunny Came Home, but that’s not all she’s accomplished in her career. You can read more about Shawn Colvin right here. And best of all, if you don’t know much about her music, you can tune it in tonight and see for yourself.
