Presented by Whistling Swan Productions
December 20th through December 22nd
Celebrate Whistling Swan’s 25th Anniversary

When Whistling Swan Productions began assembling its 25th year Anniversary roster, Dan Bern stood out as the artist who we wanted to end our year long celebration. Dan has performed dozens of concerts and hundreds of songs for Whistling Swan and other promoters on stages from Fairbanks to Juneau. His December 21st Solstice Concert at the Sydney Laurence comes twenty years to the day from our last concert of the 20th century — our 100th concert in our history!

"With his acoustic guitar and a batch of witty and insightful songs, Dan Bern is rapidly becoming the voice of a new generation of folk music." - NPR

"Dan Bern is a throwback, a singer-songwriter who marvels at life's beauty, fragility, and complexity with a fresh, defiantly uncompromising style. In a perfect world, he'd be as beloved as Dylan or Lennon-he's that good!" - Stereophile magazine contributing editor David Sokol 

Like we said, Dan Bern is a throwback to the days of exemplary songs and extraordinary songwriters. He's one of the very best, and we sure could use more of his kind these days.
Event Details
Runs approximately 2 hours including intermission.
BABIES — STRONGLY Discouraged. Ticket required for all ages.
CHILDREN — Must be age 9 or older to attend. Recommended for ages 9 and older.
Whistling Swan Productions strives to provide a listening environment where patrons and artists can focus on the music without distraction. Because of the quiet acoustic nature of most of our shows, all children in attendance should be able to sit without supervision in a way that does not distract or disturb other listeners for sets that normally last at least an hour, and may stretch to two full hours. In our four decades of producing shows, attending shows with our own children, and supervising students as educators, we have found that children under the age of nine (9) seldom have the interest and focus to sit through acoustic shows of this length without causing stress on parents, musicians, and other listeners. Therefore, while there are rare exceptions, we strongly advise parents to not bring children under the age of nine to Whistling Swan shows unless they are specifically labeled as for children or families.
