CAMDEN - Two veteran performers and 'two of the funniest entertainers on today's music scene' (Boston Globe) will bring their unique brand of smart, friendly, hilarious musical folk comedy to the Opera House stage Saturday March 19 at 7:30 p.m. 'So many people have been asking for more comedy, more up' shows in these troubled and uncertain times,' says Kerry Hadley, Camden Opera House manager. 'I remember having a glorious night out with other young mothers catching Christine in her Bitching Babes' show and becoming an instant fan.' Christine emerged from the NYC singer/songwriter scene in the late 1980s, quickly establishing 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.

Her co-conspirator, Don White, is the latest artist out of many that Christine has championed. 'He's such an original; I call him sometimes a blue collar intellectual,'' Lavin says. 'Don has extremely high standards when it comes to what he does onstage. And he hits a grand slam every time. The first time we worked together he opened for me and it's the only time in my entire career that I opened with a ballad because he was so funny, the audience was laughed out.'

A product of the rich Boston Arts Scene of the 90s, Don developed his songwriter/performer chops at Club Passim and Olde Vienna Kaffehaus and the legendary Catch a Rising Star in Harvard Square in Cambridge.

Don White has a new DVD, 'Once More with Feeling' and CD 'More Alive' available for purchase the night of the show. (And no, this is a different Don White than the Camden Select Board person of the same name.)

Tickets are general admission and $17 in advance and $20 the night of the show. Tickets are available at www.camdenoperahouse.com or by calling (207)470-7066, or for no fee walk-up at the Camden Town Office M-F 9 a.m. 3 p.m. # # # # #
