CHRISTINE LAVIN

Christine Lavin is a singer/songwriter/guitarist/recording artist/author/videographer who has been working as a musician based in New York City since 1984. In 2017, she released her 23rd solo album, Spaghettification, which charted at #5 for the month of September 2017 on the International FolkDJ charts.

For four years she hosted "Slipped Disks" on XM Satellite Radio, playing CDs slipped to her backstage by compatriots, and she is now the occasional guest host for the City Folk Sunday Supper on WFUV-FM at Fordham University. She also writes freelance for various publications, including The Washington Post, Huffington Post, The St. Petersburg Times, The Performing Songwriter, The Finger Lakes Times, and Delta "Sky" Magazine.

The book The Pluto Files: The Rise and Fall of America’s Favorite Planet, written by Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium in NYC, includes the complete lyrics to Christine's song "Planet X," which details Pluto's history and planetary status debate. The book is published by W.W. Norton -- and Christine got a "D" in Astronomy in college (See kids? You CAN make up for the mistakes of your youth). She has appeared in concert with Neil deGrasse Tyson as part of his “Astronomers & Comedians” tour, and is fairly certain she is the first Astronomy D student to ever do so.

Christine hosts knitting circles backstage prior to each show. Her knitting circle at The Cedar will begin at 7pm. All yarn work is welcome (knitting, crocheting, tatting, quilting too) and there will be prizes.
