This Bellingham based singer-songwriter has been entertaining and enlightening audiences around the world for nearly 30 years. Music and storytelling connect people and events in powerful ways, and Dana’s performances do so brilliantly. Whether his audience is a dozen children at a house party, hundreds of activists and dignitaries at the Elwha Dam removal ceremony, or thousands of music lovers attending Folklife, every performance is a celebration of life on earth, fueled by his infectious music, sharp wit, keen observation and warm heart. Dana’s beautiful new CD, The Great Salish Sea, is a collection of stories about ordinary beings, loving this earth and each other during extraordinary times. The title track is a stirring account of the dramatic, and dangerous, changes experienced by one orca whale as she has returned to the Salish Sea throughout her 101 years. As a passionate lifelong advocate for the environment and social justice, Dana Lyons has been defending pristine the salmon habitat of Bristol Bay in Alaska, resisting the fracking of farmland in Australia, blocking the Keystone XL pipeline, and fighting to stop the devastating impact of coal exports through our own Great Salish Sea. While he often performs at festivals, rallies and educational events, this is a rare chance to hear him in a full evening concert in Seattle. Prepare to laugh, sing and renew your appreciation for the earth we all call home. Concerts are held in the Community Hall (brick building). Free parking in the lower parking lot at the Center. Enter the lot on N 67th, between Phinney and Dayton Ave. Phinney Center has disability parking outside the door on the Dayton Street side of the building and flat access into the hall from Dayton. Parking on Dayton Ave is available for disabled and musician load/unload only.
