Shawn Colvin: Holiday Songs and Lullabies

Following the breakout success of 1996’s A Few Small Repairs, Shawn Colvin recorded a hauntingly beautiful and tender LP of seasonal and traditional tunes. Adapted from 1965 book Lullabies and Night Songs by composer Alec Wilder and beloved children’s author Maurice Sendak, Holiday Songs and Lullabies retains a magical and weary tone, captured in the sparse piano and strings of songs like “In the Bleak Mid-Winter” and “Christmas Time Is Here.” Colvin wields these gorgeously wrought tunes alongside some of her own, with full-band backing for a special holiday livestream. Virtual meet-and-greet also available. – Doug Freeman
