Christine Lavin / Don White - Cole Auditorium, Greenwich Library - May 17, 2015
This was a weird hybrid kind of gig. Lavin was the known quantity going in, and the obvious draw; White much less so. Each is an independent performer, with a fair amount of humor in the songs, or is it music in the jokes? They recognize themselves as kindred souls, and it makes its own kind of sense; the collaboration is minimal, it’s more like a tag-team approach. We sat in the front row, so were fair fodder for the onstage antics. Toots got dragooned into coming up to turn the pages of a giant picture book; I interrupted the sketching to join the on-stage chorus for the major production number, Lavin’s “Sensitive New-Age Guys”.
