First Parish Church will host a concert featuring longtime favorites Christine Lavin and Don White on Nov. 6 at 8 p.m.
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. Don’t miss them Nov 6 at First Parish Watertown, presented by Tremedal Concerts.
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.”
