The public is invited to join the Orca Network and musician Dana Lyons at 5:30 p.m., Saturday, June 4 at the Langley Whale Center for a special Orca Awareness Month concert.
Lyons is a singer/songwriter from Kingston, New York who now resides in Bellingham, Washington. He is known for his songs including “Cows with Guns.” Some of his most recent work includes “Salmon Come Home” which was written to raise awareness about two proposed mines in Alaska, and “The Great Salish Sea” written from the perspective of Southern Resident orca granny depicting how the sounds of boats have changed over the last century.
Lyons is performing at concert halls, festivals, conventions, fundraisers and universities across the US and around the world, and he has just returned to the Pacific Northwest from a successful east coast tour. Lyons will be available to sign books and CDs after the concert. The Langley Whale Center Youth Team member Audri Cooke will open with her original song “When the Whales come Home.”
The center is asking for a suggested donation of $10 with all proceeds benefiting the Langley Whale Center, a project of Orca Network. The Langley Whale Center is located at 115 Anthes Avenue in Langley, Washington. For more information contact Orca Network at 360 331-3543 or visit their website www.orcanetwork.org.
