Folksinger and songsmith DAVID HB DRAKE will present his 40th annual “Let There Be Light !” Concert at the Mitchell Park Domes in Milwaukee, WI on Sunday, December 18 at 2pm. The event is included in the regular Domes admission price. Contact 414-257-5600 for information.
“Let There Be Light !” is a concert of seasonal folk songs, popular tunes, original songs and traditional carols. The program covers the spectrum of seasonal music from little known folksongs to everyone’s favorites, spiced with sing-alongs and good cheer! The program ranges from the first carol sung in North America to English wassails, French carols, memories of Christmas trees and marvelous toys.
David performs on a variety of handmade folk instruments including mountain banjo, mountain dulcimer, concertina, Native American flute and guitar. Many of these songs appear on the “Let There Be Light” CD recording with Elizabeth Friedman, who has often performed with David in past Christmas concerts at the Domes.
