Internationally known singer-songwriter Christine Lavin leads off the 2009 First Acoustics Live Folk & Jazz Concert Series at 8 p.m., January 10 at the First Unitarian Church, Pierrepont Street between Monroe Place and Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door.
Lavin is known for her liquid and lyrical voice, virtuoso guitar skills and comedic sensibility. She threads improv and dialogue between her “skewed” songs into an incisive theatre-concert.
Among Lavin’s hits are “Good Thing He Can’t Read My Mind” and “Sensitive New Age Guys.” Her newest CD (available at concerts only) is “I Don’t Make This Stuff Up…I Just Make It Rhyme” and includes “A Shark in New York Waters.”
When not performing or recording, Lavin is a freelance writer, is the occasional guest host for the “Sunday Breakfast” radio program on WFUV in New York City, and is also on xm satellite radio Channel 15, “The Village.”
First Acoustics, led by First Unitarian congregant Coco Wilde, was organized to help celebrate the 175th anniversary of the church’s founding in 1833.
