Shawn Colvin

The Camden County Board of Freeholders didn't have the money to mail out their 2010 Park Events Guide this year which may explain why there wasn't a huge crowd for the free Shawn Colvin concert at Cooper River.

It's a shame more people didn't attend because they missed out on a lovely evening.

We've been Colvin fans since the early '90's but we've only seen her perform once back when she toured with Bruce Hornsby, Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt.

Seeing her in an intimate, laid back setting was quite a treat. Not only did she play most of her hits but she also covered songs by Crowded House, Steve Earle, Tom Waites and the Talking Heads. I love a songwriter who appreciates other people's songs.

Plus she was surprisingly funny.

As we were leaving, another concert attendee recognized Brian from Last Comic Standing. I meekly said, "Hi. Episode 3." The woman said, "I wasn't sure it was you because you look so young." Even though I thanked her, I kept thinking, "Yikes, how old did I look on TV?"
