Cohn returns for 1st time since shooting

Singer-songwriter to perform in Colorado again

BOULDER, Colo. — Singer-songwriter Marc Cohn will return to Colorado for concerts in three cities next week, his first performances in the state since he was shot in the head during a carjacking attempt in Denver nearly a year and a half ago.

Cohn will play in Boulder, Breckenridge and Aspen, according to his Web site.

In August 2005, Cohn was shot during a botched carjacking. Joseph Yacteen, 27, pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree murder in the shooting and was sentenced in October to 36 years in prison.

Cohn, 47, told The Daily Camera he feels some anxiety about his return: “The truth of the matter of is, and I’m well aware of it though it’s hard to convince your brain, the chance of anything like that happening again, especially where it’s already happened once, are pretty slim.”

Cohn, who’s married to ABC News anchor Elizabeth Vargas, had a hit with “Walking in Memphis” and won a Grammy in 1991. His latest album is due out next summer, his first since 1998 and fourth overall.
