Event description

Description

Christine Lavin is a critically acclaimed and beloved NY singer/songwriter whose funny and poignant songwriting and engaging performances have endeared her to lovers of folk music everywhere.

“Lavin is a folkie’s folkie." Fellow singer Janis Ian has referred to her as ‘the unsung heroine of the latter-day folk movement’.” Boston.com

To the delight of her local fans, Lavin, a Peekskill native - born and bred - returns to Peekskill for her first ever 'Peekskill Homecoming Concert' on Saturday, November 17th 8pm.

Christine and her eight brothers and sisters went to Assumption for elementary school. As they continued through the local Parochial School system, Christine chose Public school, Drum Hill Junior High, and then Peekskill High School. There her English teacher, Mrs. Johnson encouraged her to write. Christine also twirled baton in Marching Band; she remembers Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy on the reviewing stand for a celebratory parade for a school game. “I was a fan of the Kennedys, even though we were in the middle of a routine as we marched by, I stopped twirling for a few seconds and waved like crazy to RFK and he waved back!” With that kind of encouragement, Ms. Lavin still impresses her audiences with great baton moves!

Ms.Lavin looks forward to reconnecting with her old and new friends. “We didn’t have a yearbook,” she laughs! I think that’s why I spend so much time autographing CDs after my shows—it's the high school yearbook I never got to sign!”

Don't miss this consumate perfomer and folk music heroine at this rare, and sure-to-be-amazing, concert event!
