Live Concerts

Christine Lavin and Don White present ''Concert-N-Comedy''

Event Date: 
Friday, April 19, 2013 - 8:00pm
Together Christine and Don offer a laughter filled evening of superb narrative and song. Christine Lavin's smart and funny take on contemporary life and foible make for one-of-a-kind concert. As a songwriter, she brings the insight and wit of a humor columnist together with a novelist's eye for evocative detail. Her songs range far and wide to include: relationships (What Was I Thinking?), food and romance (French Toast Bread Pudding), or romance again! (Stop Sobbing-He's An Idiot) or politics; (Happy Dance of the Xenophobe). While the title of her latest solo album - may sound like a disclaimer - Don't Make This Stuff Up ... I Just Make It Rhyme, it is clear she's an expert on our days and ways. Don White - This working class family man from Lynn, Massachusetts has emerged as the thoughtful songwriter of the decade whose relevance to our lives is evidenced by the powerful reaction he evokes at every concert. He learned his art in the trenches: often doing nine shows a week at Catch A Rising Star comedy club for over two and a half years. Studying the masters who passed through that fabled club, he developed his own infectious brand of humor and pathos that rivets the crowd whenever he plays. Whether he is singing, speaking, or setting up the sneakiest punch line of the night, Don has the hearts of his audiences. They know they have his! Ticket Prices: $30 (Stu/Sen $28, Mem $25, Child U12 $15)
