Musician Christine Havrilla captivated concert goers at the Siegel JCC of Wilmington with a lively performance earlier this month. This was meant to be a free community outdoor concert and picnic. But when Mother Nature did not cooperate, concert organizers moved the party indoors! Spreading blankets and picnic goodies on the floor, guests kicked back, relaxed and enjoyed Havrilla’s powerful voice and guitar-playing.
Havrilla, who takes inspiration from U2, 10,000 Maniacs, Sheryl Crow and Cyndi Lauper, introduced songs from her latest album, “The Old Church Fuzz,” and other original tunes. Born in Pottstown, Penn., Havrilla spent some time in Oregon, but she has now returned to the East Coast. Her connection with nature is clear, as demonstrated through her song, “Reprise Daffodil.”
