Eddie & Agnes Returns in December with Shawn ColvinDecatur Metro | October 21, 2012 | 10:12 am
After a long respite – those two Civil Wars concerts and the Book Fest must have exhausted poor Daren Wang – Eddie & Agnes is back!
On Saturday, December 8th, Eddie Owen returns to Decatur to present Shawn Colvin at Agnes Scott’s Presser Hall! Colvin is touring in support of her latest album, “All Fall Down”. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door and are available for purchase at www.eddieowenpresents.com.
After the jump, a short summary from the release regarding Colvin’s latest effort…
On All Fall Down, Shawn Colvin’s third Nonesuch disc, the singer-songwriter enlisted as producer her longtime friend and occasional band-mate, guitarist Buddy Miller. The sessions, at Miller’s home studio in Nashville, Tennessee, were distinguished, as Colvin describes them, by a kind of back-porch bonhomie. An open-door policy encouraged drop-ins from a number of stellar musicians, including singers Emmylou Harris, Allison Krauss, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Jakob Dylan as well as fiddle-player extraordinaire Stuart Duncan. The easygoing atmosphere, however, did not prevent the incisive Colvin, on these 11 new tracks, from examining some hard cold truths. The material often took shape with Colvin performing live in the studio, singing and playing acoustic guitar, and the tracks were then subtly embellished by an impressive ad hoc combo Miller had convened, featuring Bill Frisell on electric guitar, Viktor Krauss on bass, and Brian Blade on drums.
