White is equal parts storyteller-comedian-author-troubadour-folk singer-songwriter, and has been bringing audiences to laughter and tears for 30 years. His arc as an award-winning songwriter and performer has taken him from his industrial hometown of Lynn, MA across the country as hitchhiker, through Boston’s comedy clubs and coffeehouses, and onto the stage with greats like Arlo Guthrie, Taj Mahal, Ritchie Havens, Patty Larkin, Bill Morrissey, Tom Rush, Louden Wainright III and Christine Lavin, with whom he toured for 8 years all across North America in a co-bill called ‘The Funny Side of the Street.’ At every point, White has been the ultimate observer, infusing his work with his experiences as a husband, a father, a seeker, and a joker. In 2011, he won the Jerry Christen Memorial Award, given out by Boston Area Coffeehouse Association, for his work with the community. Learn more about Don White online at donwhite.net.
Opening for White is PCA’s own John Ferullo. Ferullo has been playing his own songs and others’ folk and acoustic music in coffeehouses, restaurants, festivals, bars and anywhere else for about ten years. His music is influenced by Woody Guthrie, Bill Morrissey, Steve Goodman, Greg Brown, John Hurt and others. For more information, visit John online at johnferullo.com.
The Boston Globe says, ““White is a riot on stage, a bona fide crowd pleaser. One of the most popular acts on the circuit. He plays an audience the way Leo Kottke plays a 12-string.” Do not miss your chance to catch this high profile show in your own back yard.
