Shawn Colvin and Steve Earle first met nearly three decades ago as Colvin opened a solo acoustic performance by Earle at Northampton, Massachusetts’s beloved Iron Horse. The two proved fast friends, collaborating occasionally over the years, until finally teaming up for 2014’s “Songs and Stories, Together Onstage” tour, a sold-out run that saw the duo uniting for one-of-a-kind evenings of song-swapping, duets and storytelling. The Albany Times Union hailed the show as “a near perfect pairing,” while The Morning Call praised Colvin & Earle for “(spurring) each other to greater heights.” The Cleveland Plain Dealer summed it up best, declaring it “a joy to be able to witness two of the greatest at their craft.” The shows were so exceptional that Earle proposed that he and Colvin record an entire album together in the spirit of the tour. The result was the upcoming album Colvin & Earle, which will be released this summer. The album’s all-star backing band included guitarist Richard Bennett, drummer Fred Eltringham, and bassist Chris Wood, along with Grammy winner Buddy Miller at the helm as producer and baritone guitarist. Special Guest TBA.
