Shawn Colvin This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   The Shawn Colvin concert in March at the Capitol Center in Concord, New Hampshire was packed. This was her first performance after winning two Grammies (record and song of the year for "Sunny Came Home"). Ana Egge, from Austin, Texas was the opening act.

Shawn and Ana both had great music using only an acoustic guitar and their voices. The sound filled the whole auditorium. Shawn is a great performer and handled herself well with the crowd despite the fact that she forgot a few chords. Shawn's only mistake was when she had trouble remembering a song, but it didn't take away from the performance. It showed the human side of her and demonstrated why live performances have more meaning than a CD. She also had a question- and-answer session and tried her best to answer everyone's questions and also told about her experiences at the Grammies.

I thought the concert was wonderful. She was really into the audience which made the concert more enjoyable. The few mistakes she made made the concert more real. The personal experiences really got the crowd involved. I would definitely see Shawn Colvin again; she was wonderful. .
