We're really lucky to be hosting singer-songwriter and long term environmental activist Dana Lyons on World Environment Day 5 June. Dana is well known for his sidesplittingly funny animal rights song Cows With Guns. He also has a huge repertoire of other environmental and social justice tunes.
Dana is playing one night only in Mackay at Taylors Hotel, Tuesday 5 June at 6.30pm.
You'll be inspired by Dana's tales of activism around the globe, from campaigns to protect old growth forests to the brave people who put their bodies on the line to end the Canadian seal slaughter. He also has some wonderful romantic tunes that will melt your heart.
Dana is a keen supporter of the work Mackay Conservation Group has been doing to protect the planet from the impacts of climate change. He's currently in Australia playing in remote and not so remote locations to spread the word about the importance of leaving climate destroying coal and gas in the ground.
