David HB Drake~ Singing in the Solstice

Wednesday, June 21th at 6:30pm

Bring a lawn chair!

Wisconsin folksinger and songsmith David HB Drake will be “Singing in the Solstice”
at Beulah Brinton House gazebo, 2590 South Superior Street in Milwaukee
on Wednesday, June 21th at 6:30pm. Free-will donations will benefit the Bayview Historical Society.

DAVID HB DRAKE has been called a “gentle troubadour” and an “elemental folksinger”. The waters of the Great Lakes flow in his songs, feeding the rich Wisconsin prairie where his music takes root. His love of the earth, of good work, and of each other blend in an evening of original writing, traditional songs, and works by contemporary singer/songwriters in the folk tradition. The echoes of his mentors Tom Paxton, Phil Ochs, Stan Rogers, Harry Belafonte, Paul Simon, Gordon Lightfoot, Pete Seeger, and Gordon Bok are woven in his music.
