Who is this Don White guy?
“If it were up to me – the whole world would know Don White! Oh boy do I love Don – I always have. No one can bring you to such beautiful emotional extremes more than Don. His shows are like a dirty fix and a saving grace all within a few minutes. I think watching him perform is when I decided I’d much rather affect an audience than entertain them – I knew I probably couldn’t do both – but somehow Don does. And exceptionally well.” – Lori McKenna, Grammy award winning singer/songwriter
There is no one-word description for what Don White does. He has survived and thrived for more than twenty years, bringing his audiences to laughter and tears in his live performances, studio recordings, and on the printed page. He is a storyteller-comedian-author-troubadour-folk singer-songwriter. He is a walking challenge to the phrase “file under.” Best to just sort him under “Don White.”
Reprising his most popular workshop from the Folk Alliance Region Midwest and Folk Alliance International conferences, Don will be demonstrating and offering techniques for bringing the funny to your shows. Seating is limited so don’t delay.

Harnessing the Power of Humor: A Workshop for Performers
When the space between songs is as entertaining as the music the audience remains connected to the performance from the first note of the evening until the concert ends. Humor is powerful. When an audience is laughing they are engaged. You will learn how to use the powerful combination of story and humor to keep your audience focused from song to song. Among the comedy tools we will discuss will be confidence, body language, misdirection, set up/pay off, and vocal inflection. The goal is not to turn you into a comedian but to give you a greater understanding of what makes people laugh so you can use it to find a style and level of humor that suits your unique personality.
