Saturday, December 10 2022 7:30 PM 9:30 PM EDT

Christine Lavin with with special guest Tina Ross and post-concert meet & greet! Everyone gets to meet Christine, the old-timer, and Tina, the newbie!

Showtime is 7:30, but come knit with Christine from 6:30-7:30!

Christine Lavin is a singer/songwriter/guitarist/recording artist/author/videographer based in New York City. 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. She is currently working on her 26th solo album.

During much of the pandemic, Christine made ends meet by performing online concerts, writing and recording songs, creating videos for other artists, and selling her books and CDs from her website (she is the president, secretary, messenger, and complaint department of her record company, while becoming friends with all the window clerks at her Lower East Side post office). For most of her online concerts she asked for requests, and many of her fans asked for songs she hadn’t performed in years. Much to their delight, she went about re-learning many of them. 

“Christine Lavin is an iconic singer/songwriter who has earned her legendary status through years of tireless performing, doing shows at once quirky, hilarious and touching. Her songs have a wordsmith’s eye for detail, with a comic’s vision for the absurd, and a huge and fearless heart that will go anywhere.”      -- Gary Gould, The Davison Index
“Since emerging from the NYC singer/songwriter scene in the late 1980s, (along with Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin, John Gorka, etc), Lavin quickly established herself as an entertaining tour de force. Quick on her feet, witty, insightful, engaging, she remains one of the most popular and respected performers in the genre.”    --

Joining Christine will be singer-songwriter Tina Ross in her PRE-Release CD album party,

Of Tina, Christine says she is "One of the greatest Singer Songwriters of the 21st Century!  Oh, my God.  She sent me three recordings from the album she is working on and I have chills just thinking about them.” 

DOORS at 6:30 when Christine will welcome all knitters to a knitting circle before the show! And maybe she'll even have Downton Abbey napkin folding at intermission!
