Christine Lavin’s alternately witty, comical and poignant songs have been earning glowing reviews for more than 35 years, starting in the 1980s with a string of albums that made her a folk-pop fan favorite. Christine performs concerts all over the US, Canada, and points beyond, and hosts knitting circles backstage prior to each show. Songs of hers have been performed by artists as diverse as Broadway stars Betty Buckley and Sutton Foster; cabaret diva, Andrea Marcovicci; and the college a cappella group, Dartmouth Decibelles. Christine has recently added intermission tutorial activities -- namely, teaching audience members how to fold cloth napkins in the Downton Abbey style.

Songwriter and Michigan Emmy recipient Kitty Donohoe is not an Irish or Celtic singer, but she clearly draws from that part of her heritage, as well as her American roots, as an artist. A writer of tunes as well as songs, her originals are rich with her natural sense as a storyteller, her love for language and her ear for a melody. Her music is luminous, earthy and compelling, and all of her songwriter CDs integrate the textures and feel of accordions, whistles, pipes and bodhran alongside the more standard guitar, bass or piano. Some of her originals sound like they were written 100 years ago and others are clearly contemporary, but one thing is certain: with or without a band behind her, Kitty's striking voice carries it all, delivering each song with power and emotion. www.kittydonohoe.com
