The Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is hosting a performance by musician Dana Falconberry at the D. H. Day Campground amphitheater at 8 PM this Thursday, July 2nd.
Michigan native Dana Falconberry is a songwriter now living in Austin who is best known for her eloquent interpretations of nature and wildlife in her music. Her performance will include selections from her 2012 album Leelanau, written as an ode to her childhood visits. On her Facebook page she wrote:
I’m very excited to be playing a solo show at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore this Thursday! My last record, Leelanau, was largely inspired by this park so it’s a personal favorite addition to my summer of National Park shows.
This performance is not limited those staying at D. H. Day Campground. Visitors need only purchase the Park Entrance Pass or have an Annual Pass displayed in their vehicle to join in the free fun. Due to limited parking, visitors who are not camping will be asked to park at Glen Haven and hike or bike to the D. H. Day Campground amphitheater via the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail.
Here’s a beautiful set of songs from Dana’s NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert featuring Dolomite, Crooked River and Leelanau from her album of the same name.
