One of the most beloved talents to emerge from the Greenwich Village/Fast Folk scene of the 1980s, Christine Lavin has been putting audiences in stitches, bringing them to the edge of tears, then back to hysterical laughter with her incredible songwriting wit. Among the topics she’s tackled are doing things one doesn’t particularly enjoy for the sake of a relationship, misplacing one’s glasses, the downgrading of Pluto’s planetary status, and the kind of love one never recovers from.
Speaking of stitches, she will lead a knitting workshop before the show (and a Downton Abbey napkin folding demonstration during the intermission). Bring your needles and yarn!
Christine Lavin has been called “A fearless folk-zinger!” by the Orlando Sentinel, “Wildly entertaining,” by The New Yorker, and “A fresh kick in the pants!” by the late Paul Newman. She is currently also working on her 26th solo album, ‘On My Way to Hooterville;’ and has produced a dozen compilation albums with other songwriters whose artistry she admires.
