GRAMMY® Award-winners Shawn Colvin, Marc Cohn, and Sarah Jarosz are joining forces once more for a very special collaborative tour. Shawn Colvin, Marc Cohn & Sarah Jarosz: Together In Concert will see all three artists uniting on stage for a singular evening of songs and stories from across their remarkable catalogues. US dates begin January 20 at Scottsdale, AZ’s Highland Church (as part of the annual Arizona Musicfest) and continue through early March. Highlights include performances at such historic concert venues as San Francisco, CA’s Palace of Fine Arts (January 25), Washington, DC’s Warner Theatre (February 19), Red Bank, NJ’s Count Basie Center for the Arts (February 21), and Boston, MA’s The Wilbur (March 2), as well as an eagerly anticipated visit to Alaska for shows at Anchorage, AK’s Alaska Center for the Performing Arts (February 2) and Fairbanks, AK’s Hering Auditorium (February 3). Tickets for all announced dates are on sale now.

Shawn Colvin, Marc Cohn & Sarah Jarosz: Together In Concert marks the coming together of three extraordinary singer-songwriters, each of whom has proven a generational talent across more than three decades. The collective concert performances will showcase each artist’s unique gifts – Colvin’s distinctive fingerpicking, Cohn’s signature piano, and Jarosz’s stunning mastery of stringed instruments – with unprecedented new vocal and musical arrangements.

“After Marc and Sarah and I hit the road together for the first time in 2021, we knew we wanted to perform our show again in the future,” says Shawn Colvin. “And now, in 2023, I’m so excited to announce that we are doing just that.

“All three of us are songwriters, singers, and instrumentalists, which will make for some very unique collaborations and arrangements as we share the stage together for the entire evening. Marc and Sarah both slay me with their artistry; Marc on the piano, and Sarah on several lovely stringed things, including mandolin, octave mandolin, guitar, and banjo. Singing with the two of them is an absolute joy. Hearing the songs they’ve written, night after night, never fails to raise the bar for me as a songwriter. I am an artist who usually performs solo acoustic, and it’s thrilling for me to be part of a group of such amazing and accomplished musicians, both GRAMMY® winners, and deservedly so. It is a privilege to be on tour with them both and I’m ecstatic to be in their company once again.”

“I’m thrilled to be getting back out on the road with two of my favorite artists on the planet; Shawn Colvin and Sarah Jarosz,” says Marc Cohn. “For various reasons, we were only able to perform this show together a few times… and it just wasn’t enough. So here we are. We hope you come and see us on stage together at one of the beautiful venues we’ll be appearing at this winter.”

“It’s simply a dream come true to get to go on tour with two of my heroes, Shawn Colvin and Marc Cohn,” says Sarah Jarosz. “Their albums are among my all time favorites and their songwriting and musicianship is an endless source of inspiration for me. Some of my earliest live music memories are seeing Shawn Colvin in Austin, and her performances really lit a fire within me to want to make music my life. I’m grateful to them for bringing me along, and very much looking forward to the collaborations that will emerge!”
