AN EVENING WITH CHRISTINE LAVIN

Christine Lavin is an award-winning singer-songwriter, promoter of contemporary folk music, and author based in New York. She has recorded 25 solo albums, and 10 more with 4 seasoned musician-actress comediennes under the name Four Bitchin' Babes. She is known for her sense of humor, which is expressed in both her music and her onstage performances. Many of her songs alternate between comedy and emotional reflections on romance.

The late American writer and editor Jay Walljasper wrote, "Her lilting, elegant voice and sweet, soft melodies belie a tart wit.... at times hilarious, at times absurd, at times touching, and sometimes all three at once.

Lavin has built a reputation as one of the observers and chroniclers of modern urban life, with recordings like "Prisoners of Their Hairdos," "Sensitive New Age Guys," "Good Thing He Can't Read My Mind," and "Mysterious Woman," a brilliant parody of folk-pop singer Suzanne Vega.

Her latest solo album, her 25th, ON MY WAY TO HOOTERVILLE, includes 10 new songs and one re-worked song, “Ramblin’ Waltz,” a re-telling of her time in 1975 when she was an entourage driver for the first week of Bob Dylan’s iconic “Rolling Thunder Revue” tour.

Christine Lavin has been called “A fearless folkZinger!” by the Orlando Sentinel, “Wildly entertaining,” by The New Yorker, and “A fresh kick in the pants!" by the late Paul Newman!” 

In May 2021 Christine received an Honorary Doctorate in Fine Arts from her alma mater, the State University of New York at Brockport.  This just one of her many accolades and awards.  Go to her website, www.ChristineLavin.com and be thoroughly entertained whle finding out all sorts of interesting things about her.
