The University at Buffalo Center for the Arts presents "An Acoustic Evening with Lyle Lovett and Shawn Colvin" at 8 p.m. Thursday, March 15, 2018. Tickets go on sale Friday (online at 10 a.m., box office at noon).
Long-time friends Lovett and Colvin will come together on stage for one acoustic evening of music as these two performers and songwriters share songs and stories. Singer, composer and actor Lovett has broadened the definition of American music in a career that spans 14 albums. Coupled with his gift for storytelling, the Texas-based musician fuses elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a convention-defying manner that breaks down barriers. Among his many accolades, he has won four Grammy Awards, was given the Americana Music Association's inaugural Trailblazer Award, and was named Texas State Musician.
Singer, songwriter and author Colvin won her first Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album with her debut album, "Steady On." She has been a mainstay of the singer-songwriter genre ever since, releasing 11 albums and a win at the 1998 Grammys, winning both Record and Song of the Year for "Sunny Came Home." Colvin was awarded the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award by the Americana Music Association.
