Dana Lyons In Concert – Celebration of the American Environment
Best known for his global musical comedy hit Cows With Guns which went to #2 on Australia’s Country Charts and remained on Ireland’s Top 40 for six months, Dana is a singer, guitarist and recording artist who has toured the world for thirty years promoting environmental and social justice causes.
Dana Lyons performs at festivals ranging from Farm Aid with Willie Nelson and Neil Young, to the Harley Davidson Festival in Sturgis, South Dakota. His policy of “I’ll play anywhere once” has landed Dana gigs on a tropical island in the Great Barrier Reef, an Irish Pub in Beijing and the Hanford Nuclear Waste Dump in his home state of Washington.
Here at Wolf Camp and the Conservation College, Dana is best known for his enviro-spiritual songs including The Tree, about which he will relate the history of how the song came to be written by an old growth cedar threatened and then saved from logging near Mt Baker. He’s now touring as part of his Great Salish Sea tour.
Seating is on amphitheater benches. In case of rain, the concert will take place inside the lodge. Either way, bring a pad to sit on, and don’t forget marshmallows and s’mores for time with Dana after the show! Dana will also have music, t-shirts and other goodies for sale.
