Christine Lavin and Don White-An Evening of Music and Laughter in Hartland VT


Four Corners Concerts, in Hartland, hosted an "Evening of Music and Laughter with Christine Lavin and Don White" at the Hartland Universalist Church on Saturday night. The event's organizer John Bartholomew hopes to bring back the folk music series once held in Hartland. The Lavin/White show had pre-sold 140 tickets and when doors opened at 7 p.m. there was standing room only. The Lavin/White performances have packed audiences in wherever they’ve played, from the Regent Theatre in Boston to The Ark in Ann Arbor Michigan, it appeared that Hartland Vt. was no different. Bartholomew introduced Christine Lavin by saying "My first date with my wife was to a Christine Lavin concert."
Lavin took the stage first and played a set that included a new song inspired by the TV show 'Dance Moms'. She then introduced a young girl she met before the show who requested "Amoeba Hop" which is now a book. Lavin invited Eve Lydon Ovitt on stage to turn the book pages as the song progressed.
After a brief intermission Don White opened his set which included many songs that had folks laughing so hard tears were falling and a few songs that had tears falling for other reasons. Lavin joined White for a few songs and the chemistry between the two old friends could be felt throughout the venue. The show concluded with Lavin and White inviting any "Sensitive New-Age Guys" up on stage from the audience for a sing-along to her 1990's hit "Sensitive New-Age Guy", a song she wrote with John Gorka.

The next concert planned for Four Corners Concerts will be Nov 29 featuring Nowell Sing We Clear, a group from Brattleboro. More information my be found at: http://www.hartlanduu.com/
