Live Concerts

Don White, Jackie Damsky and String River opens

Event Date: 
Saturday, January 25, 2014 - 8:00pm
Venue: 

There is no one-word description for what Don White does. He has survived and thrived for twenty years, bringing his audiences to laughter and tears in his live performances, studio recordings, and on the printed page. He is a storyteller-comedian-author-troubadour-folk singer-songwriter. He is a walking challenge to the phrase “file under.” Best to just sort him under “Don White.”

“It’s a weird, unique blend, I think,” he says. “I’m not sure how you sell this. It would be easier if, say, I just played folk music. You could say that. But I kind of have invented what it is I do. There’s no easy way to say it.”

White’s arc as a writer and performer has taken him from his industrial hometown of Lynn, Ma across the country as hitchhiker, through Boston’s comedy clubs and coffeehouses, and onto the stage with greats like Christine Lavin, Arlo Guthrie, Taj Mahal, Ritchie Havens, Patty Larkin, Bill Morrissey, Tom Rush, and Louden Wainright III. At every point, White has been the ultimate observer, infusing his work with his experiences as a husband, a father, a seeker, and a joker. donwhite.net
