Outpost in the Burbs presents Christine Lavin on Friday, April 21 and Baristanet has a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky reader!
This concert will take place at the First Congregational Church, 40 South Fullerton Avenue in Montclair. Opening will be Honor Finnegan.
The inimitable singer-songwriter, guitarist, and recording artist Christine Lavin has been based in New York City since 1976. She emerged out of the crowded New York City songwriter scene of the ’80s with a style that distinguished her from her peers. Christine is currently working on her 23rd solo album, scheduled for release in the fall of 2017.
Her music is a mix of folk and stand-up comedy and cannot be easily categorized. She has recently added intermission tutorial activities — namely, teaching audience members how to fold cloth napkins in the Downton Abbey style.
Originally from Chicago, Honor Finnegan is now based in New York City. She was the recipient of the Kerrville New Folk Song Contest in 2013 and was a Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist in 2012. Her most recent album, “Roses and Victory,” placed #3 on the Folk DJ Charts, in February of 2016. John Platt of WFUV’s “Sunday Breakfast remarked that, “Honor Finnegan’s clever songs, powerful voice, and endearing stage presence have made her standout on the fertile NYC folk scene. Don’t miss her!”
