SHIRLEY — Between the two of them, Christine Lavin and Don White have more than 40 years of combined experience making music and laughter. It’s both a treat and an experience to see them live, so don’t miss them together at Bull Run in Shirley on March 2 at 8 p.m.
This is one of only two appearances White and Lavin have scheduled together for this year.
The Lavin/White co-bill has packed audiences in wherever they’ve played, from the Regent Theatre in Boston to The Ark in Ann Arbor, Mich.
Audiences get a one-hour shot of each performer during their solo sets, and then a free-for-all when White and Lavin take the stage together and display the kind of chemistry you get from old friends and seasoned performers.
“Our show doesn’t sound like a folk concert, it sounds like a comedy concert,” White said, “there’s 400 people screaming with laughter for the whole two hours.”
You’ll never see the same show twice.
“It’s hard to describe what it is that Don does onstage, because there simply isn’t anyone out there like him,” Lavin said. “I’m a brave performer to share the bill with someone who knocks audiences out the way he does.”
Lavin is a multi-award-winning singer-songwriter, author and knitter. She released her memoir, Cold Pizza for Breakfast: A Mem-wha??, in 2010. She is also a founding member of the popular folk collective, The Four Bitchin’ Babes.
White is a celebrated singer/songwriter/storyteller who has released eight albums and three DVDs. His new CD, More Alive, is available now. His book, Memoirs Of A C Student, is available in print and for the Kindle and Nook. Lavin and White have also released a digital only live album, Live At the Ark: The Father’s Day Concert, available on CDFreedom.com.
Tickets are $22. For more information, go to www.bullrunrestaurant.com.
