Seeing Christine Lavin or Don White is a treat. Seeing Christine Lavin and Don White is an experience. Between the two of them, they more than 40 years of combined experience making music and laughter.

The Lavin/White co-bills have packed audiences in wherever they’ve played, from the Regent Theatre in Boston to The Ark in Ann Arbor, Michigan. 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. You’ll never see the same show twice.

“Our show doesn’t sound like a folk concert, it sounds like a comedy concert, there’s 400 people screaming with laughter for the whole two hours,” says White. “It’s hard to describe what it is that Don does onstage, because there simply isn’t anyone out there like him,” says Lavin. “I’m a brave performer to share the bill with someone who knocks audiences out the way he does.”

Christine 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
