Don White and Christine Lavin
Don White and Christine Lavin have toured all over North America in a show called “The Funny Side of the Street” for eight and a half years. They are both pursuing solo endeavors these days but this show is only one of two co-bills planned for 2019. Come celebrate Don’s birthday with him at this show too!
There is no one-word description for what Don White does. He has survived and thrived for twenty-five 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.
