After a two-year pandemic pause, Don White, an award-winning singer, songwriter, and comedian from Lynn, will be returning for the first time on Friday, March 3, beginning at 8 p.m.
Don White will celebrate his North Shore Birthday Show at Me&Thee Music with his son Lawren, Christina Thompson Lively, and other special guests.
For more than 30 years, Don White has been bringing audiences to laughter and tears while releasing ten CDs, three live DVDs, and two books including Memoirs of a C Student.
His latest album is Live at the Guthrie Center. White has opened for Arlo Guthrie, Richie Havens, Loudon Wainwright III, and Taj Mahal, and shared bills with David Bromberg, Janis Ian, and Lyle Lovett.
His approach to music is a unique blend of humor and powerful songwriting that prompted one reviewer to say, “Don will split your sides with laughter while prompting you to go home and hug your kids.”
White has received the Jerry Christen Memorial Award from the Boston Area Coffeehouse Association for his work with the community and has been given a key to the City of Lynn.
White has been featured in storytelling festivals around the country including the National Storytelling Festival in Jonesborough, Tennessee, and the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival in Utah.
Since 2015, he has joined master storytellers Bil Lepp and Bill Harley in Father’s Daze – a hilarious three-man storytelling show about the triumphs and tribulations of fatherhood.
White has toured North America for nine years with folk songwriting legend Christine Lavin, with whom he still plays the occasional show.
