7:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Shawn Colvin
Tonight we’ve got the second airing of Shawn Colvin’s stint as our featured singer-songwriter. A veteran of the second great folk revival, I really began paying attention when I first heard her album A Few Small Repairs with her breakthrough hit, Sunny Came Home.
Before, in between and after we give you that great wide Open Stream courtesy of The Music Mermaid. She’s totally unpredictable, and there are times when she’ll pick up a playlist. We give her free reign here in The Lounge.
