Club Red: Shawn Colvin, 12/30 + Season Lineup – Including Dennis Quaid!

Named by Skiing Magazine as one of ski country’s best concert venues, Club Red brings a wide variety of crowd-pleasing entertainers to Telluride and Mountain Village. Given the fact the Telluride region has long been a hotbed for national touring acts, Club Red adds another chapter to that rich history. The intimate music venue inside the Telluride Conference Center in Mountain Village is family-friendly and allows guests to get up close and personal with the talent.

All shows are open to all ages, with a variety of ticket options ranging from general admission to high-table seating to preferred platform seating, and some VIP-ticketed experiences.

Denise Mongan of Beyond the Groove programs the shows at Club Red. And she always nails it. Which means Club Red shows sell out quickly. Denise just announced the line-up for the venue for the 2019/2020 season, which includes The Motet, (Jan. 4); Dennis Quaid & The Sharks (Jan. 18); Samantha Fish (Feb.9); Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, (Feb. 16 & 17); Con Brio (Mar. 12); Anders Osborne & Jackie Greene (Mar. 21). The opening concert features Telluride regular Shawn Colvin, (Dec. 30). Doors, 7:30p.m.; show time, 8 p.m.

Shawn Colvin returns to Telluride to perform at Denise Mongan’s Club Red.

Shawn Colvin stopped the industry in its tracks with her arresting 1989 debut, Steady On. The following spring, she took home a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album, establishing herself as a mainstay in the singer-songwriter genre.

Over three+ decades, Colvin has won three Grammys, released 13 superlative albums, written a critically acclaimed memoir, maintained a non-stop national and international touring schedule, appeared on countless television and radio programs, had her songs featured in major motion pictures and created a remarkable canon of work.

Colvin triumphed at the 1998 Grammys, winning both Record and Song of the Year for the Top 10 hit “Sunny Came Home,” from the platinum-selling album A Few Small Repairs.

Her inspiring and candid memoir, Diamond In The Rough, was published in by Harper Collins in 2012. Diamond In The Rough looks back over Colvin’s rich lifetime of highs and lows with stunning insight and candor. Through its pages we witness the story of a woman honing her artistry, finding her voice, and making herself whole.

Shawn Colvin was recognized for her career accomplishments when she was honored with the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award by the Americana Music Association. Presenting her with this prestigious award was Bonnie Raitt:

“She’s simply one of the best singers I’ve ever heard— and a truly gifted and deep songwriter and guitarist… She was groundbreaking when she emerged and continues to inspire me and the legions of fans and other singer/songwriters coming up in her wake.”

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Steady On, in September 2019, Colvin released a newly-recorded version of her landmark debut, crafting a truly mesmerizing reinvention, performing the album with just her voice and guitar. The Steady On 30th Anniversary Acoustic Edition strips each song to the core, placing Colvin’s songwriting masterclass on full display:

“I’ve played these songs countless times, primarily as a solo acoustic artist,” she said. “All in all, this is the incarnation that feels most genuine. This represents who I am as an artist and all I ever wanted to be, and I believe it does its predecessor proud.”

Colvin was recently honored with an induction into the 2019 Austin City Limits Hall of Fame, alongside legendary artists Lyle Lovett and Buddy Guy. In a moving induction speech, Jackson Browne praised her as “ineffable” – “that which is impossible to express in words” – and went on to say:

“Not many writers are able to do what Shawn does. It’s a very special way of relating what really matters. It takes an original to get our attention. Shawn is utterly original in her singing, and original in what she speaks about in her songs.”

Over the course of three decades, Shawn Colvin has established herself as a captivating performer and a revered storyteller, well-deserving of the commendation of her peers and the devoted audiences who have been inspired by her artistry. And as she enters her next decade as a songwriter and performer, Colvin continues to reaffirm her status as a vital voice in music.
