Every Generation or so a young bluesman bursts onto the scene. Someone who sends a jolt through blues lovers. Someone who has mastered the craft for sure, but who also has the blues deep down in his heart and soul. At the age of 21, bluesmanJontavious Willis may be the one.
In his 2016 debut album, "Blue Metamorphosis," Willis ranges from Delta, Piedmont and Texas blues to gospel, garnishing positive reviews from such notable magazines as Living Blues and Blues & Rhythm. You can hear him on guitar, harmonica, banjo and cigar box, fingerpicking, flat-picking and playing slide. And these days you can see him everywhere from his front porch in Greenville, Georgia, to national stages as he opens for Taj Mahal and Keb' Mo'.
“That’s my Wonderboy, the Wunderkind. [Jontavious] is a great new voice of the twenty-first century in the acoustic blues. I just love the way he plays.” — Taj Mahal
“Only a few like him emerge every decade or so, when even the most hard core blues fans realize immediately that this is the real deal.” Living Blues Magazine
Leave your worries at the doorstep and join Christine Lavin andDon White as they reunite for this special night of comedy unlike any other, The Funny Side of the Street: A Night of Brighter Laughter.
After more than 8 years of touring North America, Christine and Don began working on their own solo projects. This Bull Run Show is one of only two times that they are scheduled to perform together in 2019. AND Don will be celebrating his 62nd birthday this night so you know it will be a very special show.
Christine and Don ARE two of the funniest entertainers on today's music scene. This is definitely a double trouble show.You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll laugh some more.
Two of America's most-loved songwriters and raconteurs join forces for this one-of-a-kind event.
Christine Lavin is the mischievous singer-songwriter who brought us "Good Thing He Can't Read My Mind" (she later rewrote it from the male point of view) and "Sensitive New Age Guys" The Washington Post says "Lavin knows how to keep her audience guessing, thinking and laughing all at the same time." With a comedienne's arsenal of irony and wit, Christine's delightfully skewed songs cover a lot of territory. Relationships: "What Was I Thinking?", politics: "Baracolate Chip Cookies", life's injustices: "Attractive Stupid People" and a lot more!
Don White is a Lynn, Massachusetts-based songwriter who has the gift of connecting immediately with an audience.Coming from the world of stand-up, he is a funny man whose concerts can turn what happens in his home into an onstage biopic! His funny and often touching songs like "How to Get Your Kids to Leave Home", "Be 16 With Me", and "Rascal" go straight to his audience's heart.
Together, Christine Lavin and Don White are the funny, funny 2-fer of comedy and song. Be prepared of anything.
