Sun, March 18, 20187:00 PM

The Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums are proud to announce the line-up for the 2018 Winter Lyceum Lecture Series. All of these lectures are free to the public and will take place at the Platteville Municipal Auditorium at 75 N. Bonson Street in Platteville.

Wisconsin's vibrant past comes to life in Wiscon-Sing, a multi-media performance of music and images featuring educator and folksinger David HB Drake. David has performed Wiscon-Sing for 30 years and counting live in state schools and libraries. David engages audiences of all ages in an authentic immersion into history, performing on handmade and historic instruments: mountain banjo, dulcimer, concertina, Native American flute, and guitar. Stories of Native Americans, French explorers, European immigrants, Great Lakes sailors, lumberjacks and farmers are further enhanced with over 150 historic and scenic images and sing-along captioned lyrics. It was performed over 300 times statewide during the 1998 Wisconsin Sesquicentennial and over a thousand times over the years.
