Massachusetts native and 1998 Best New Artist winner Paula Cole, whose music helped define the '90s, is set to perform Feb. 23 in Gardiner, Maine.

The singer, who wrote and produced smash hit 1997 singles "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?" — nominated for three Grammy Awards — and Dawson's Creek opening theme "I Don't Want to Wait," has recently returned to her roots by performing jazz and folk classics.

Cole's performance in Gardiner is scheduled to be held at the Johnson Hall Theater on Water Street. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.

Cole's other scheduled performance dates for late winter and early spring include Feb. 22 at the Hawks and Reed Arts Center in Greenfield, Mass.; March 31 on The Melissa Heidegger Cruise, sailing from Tampa, Fla., to the Caribbean; and shows in Virginia, Illinois, Wisconsin and California.
