Blue Northern is a five piece band from Maine playing traditional, original, and contemporary acoustic music. The group was formed by the confluence of countless musical coincidences, whereby pickers with a love of acoustic music would gather over- burnt frozen pizza and fresh green olives and play their hearts out just for the heck of it. Gradually they decided, “Hey, you know, this doesn’t sound so bad! Let’s take it on the road.” So here they are. Featuring vocals from four of the members, instrumentation includes Paul Anderson on guitar & mandolin, Jim Coffman on fiddle, Peter Davis on guitar & tenor guitar, David Manski, and Greg TeHennepe on dobro. $12.00 suggested donation.

Young Franklin joyfully spent his boyhood summers on Campobello Island. There he met TomahJoseph, a Passamaquoddy elder and former chief who made his living as a guide, birchbark canoe builder, and basketmaker. Authors Soctomah and Flahive imagine the relationship that developed between these two as Tomah Joseph taught young Franklin how to canoe and shared some of the stories and culture of his tribe. A beautifully decorated birchbark canoe that Tomah Joseph made for Franklin remains at Campobello Island, a tangible reminder of this special friendship. Donald Soctomah is a member of the Passamaquoddy Tribe, serves as his tribe’s representative in the Maine State Legislature, and is the tribal historic preservation officer. He has written seven books about Passamaquoddy history and culture, including a tri-lingual children’s book which he co-authored with Nathalie Gagnon, Tihtiyas and Jean, winner of the iParenting Media Award in Canada. Donald lives with his family in Indian Township, near Peter Dana Point where Tomah Joseph spent most of his life. Young Franklin joyfully spent his boyhood summers on Campobello Island.

This promises to be a fascinating evening exploring the childhood influences of Franklin Roosevelt who would become the thirty-second president of the United States. A review by David Moses Bridges; Passamaquoddy master canoe builder, says;” Remember Me is a wonderful story that describes not only the magic and mystery of our ancestral homeland but the giving nature of our elders.” Another by Joan Lester,author of History on Birchbark: The Art of Tomah Joseph, Passamaquoddy,says:” Written by a Passamaquoddy, this story is a wonderful addition to the growing volume of children’s literature that respectfully and accurately presents Native people to a wider audience.” Admission is free with all donations going to support a charity of Soctomah’s choice. Signed books will be available for purchase. Seat reservations are strongly recommended for what is likely to be a very popular event. Tel: (207) 963 5557 or e-mail oceaninn@oceaninn.com

Thursday, July 7th, 7:30 p.m. at Oceanside Meadows Innstitute for Arts and Sciences. Ann Rivers presents a slide-illustrated talk on Wildlife Rehabilitation. Ann works at the Acadia Wildlife Foundation which is a non-profit wildlife rehabilitation clinic and Nature Center, located in Bar Harbor, Maine. It was founded in 1994 with the goal of caring for injured or orphaned native animals and releasing healthy animals back to the wild. The care of the wildlife is undertaken by trained professionals with licenses from the state of Maine. They treat native birds, mammals and turtles, which are brought to the clinic by game wardens, vets, police, marine patrol, and by many members of the general public. The range of incoming species requires a large variety of habitats; from a flight pen for an eagle, to a water cage for a loon, to a huge enclosure for bears. At any time they are ready to treat, feed and house anything from a mouse to a moose. Education programs in the Nature Center feature non-releasable animals and hands-on displays for all ages. Ann’s talk will give an overview of rehabilitation, and will include stories of individual animals. She will also be discussing how we can all help in the protection of wildlife and be more aware of the impact of our actions; 85% of wildlife patients nationwide are injured or orphaned as the result of human or domestic pet interactions, not hurt by natural causes. Ann grew up on Mount Desert Island and has taken an active interest in rehabilitation since schooldays. She has a bachelors degree in wildlife biology from Trenton University in Ontario, Canada and has worked in research. Admission is free with all donations going to the Acadia Wildlife Foundation which is dependent on private donations and occasional grant money. Reservations are recommended.

  • Finest-Kind-Lobstermen-of-Corea

Thursday, July 14th, 7:30 p.m. at Oceanside Meadows Innstitute for Arts and Sciences, in aid of the Schoodic Peninsula Fund, author and photographer, Mark Starr ,will present a talk, illustrated by his beautiful photographs, based on his latest book, Finest Kind: The Lobstermen of Corea; Portrait of a Down East Fishing Village. Today, the village of Corea is an anomaly on Maine’s shores. As other harbors along the coast succumb to the realities of the modern economy, Corea continues to hold onto its fishing heritage. The harbor is still filled with working watercraft that leave before dawn to work their traps both near and offshore. Generations of lobstermen continue their independent lifestyle and earn a living from the waters their fathers and grandfathers once fished, passing to the following generation both a healthy fishery and a sense of pride in the work they do. Finest Kind,in both photographs and interviews with the fishernem themselves, provides outsiders with a window into the life within this very special fishing community. Mark Starr received a B.A. from Weslyan University in Middletown,Ct. He exhibits his photographic work and has won numerous prizes. He is a selected artist at the Mystics Arts Centre as well as a member of the Artists Cooperative Gallery and the American Child Photographers Charity Guild. He began his photographic career in 2006, having left his job in a maritime museum to document the rapidly disappearing world of the commercial fisherman in New England. Over the course of the past five years he has documented the fishermen of Point Judith, Rhode Island, the fishing industry in New Bedford, Massachusetts, the last dairy farmers in North Stonington, Connecticut, the last trap fishermen in Rhode Island, the closing of the last sardine cannery in America as well as the lobstermen of Corea, Maine. He has published seven books of his work, and the images fromf his long-term projects have been selected for inclusion in the permanent collections of institutions such as Historic New England and The Library of Congress. Starr’s work has been featured twice in the “bible” of black and white contemporary photography, Lenswork.

Admission is free, with donations going to the Schoodic Community Fund. The mission of the Schoodic Community Fund (SCF) is to improve the quality of life for all residents of the Schoodic Peninsula. The Fund is especially concerned with the education, culture, environment, and well-being of Schoodic residents, as well as the economic vitality of the Peninsula. The Fund is held by the Maine Community Foundation (MCF), a charitable 501(c) 3 organization. The SCF grants may be made to improve the physical structures of local meeting places, assist arts programmes, beautify our villages and towns, retrofit public buildings to make them environmentally friendly, support libraries and health clinics, and strengthen local educat ion through support for specific projects.

  • Isla-Duo

Thursday, July 21st at 7:30 p.m. Isla Duo in Concert at the Oceanside Meadows Innstitute for the Arts and Sciences. The acoustic duo Isla was formed in 1995 when vocalist Deborah Packard and Scottish guitarist Peter Cairney met in Nashville, TN. The couple has been delighting audiences ever since with programs of music rooted in the Celtic tradition. From original versions of British Isles ballads to haunting counterparts from the mountains of Appalachia, stories once again come to life through engaging settings of voice and instruments (guitar, mountain dulcimer, harmonium, tin whistle and bodhran). Isla’s particular sound has arisen quite organically from the union of backgrounds of its two members: a New Englander from a family laced with singers, musicians and readers of poetry and drama, and a Scotsman whose professional career began with the British Folkrock group “Contrabnd” [Transatlatic Records] and continued across a span of richly diverse genres.

The resulting tapestry is a seamless blend of old and new worlds; of tradition informed by changing experiences but no less identifiably familiar. Isla’s performance credits, among many, include Piccolo Spoleto Festival (Charleston,SC); Birmingham City Stages (Birmingham, AL); Chicago Celtic Festival; Laurel Theater (Knoxville, TN); Savannah Folk Festival; Fiddle and Bow Society (Winston-Salem, NC); Old Brogue Celtic Concert Series (Great Falls, VA); and various times as featured guests with the Nashville Chamber Orchestra (Schermerhorn Symphony Hall and other locations).

Deborah Packard has had a longstanding affinity for the vocal arts; her family is laced with singers, musicians and readers of drama and poetry. Her earliest memories include a great-aunt teaching her the Scottish border ballad “Raggle Taggle Gypsies” on an island in Maine, and a farmer grandfather supplying a steady entertainment of folksongs in English and French-Canadian. Fascinated by various elements of storytelling, she has performed both as a singer and as a dramatic reader.Deborah’s fondness for Celtic music led her to work in Nashville with Scottish guitarist Peter Cairney. As a duo [and, on occasion, trio with fiddler Bill Verdier], Packard and Cairney perform as Isla. Their unique musical partnership offers Deborah’s voice in a setting akin to her heritage and her love of words and melody.In addition to Isla, she has worked as a session vocalist for different artists, including award winning Nashville songwriter Marcus Hummon and Scottish singer and songwriter Mae McKenna. Deborah has been featured on both of the existing CD musical collections from the “Little House” books of Laura Ingalls Wilder, produced under the “Pa’s Fiddle” label by Vanderbilt musicologist Dale Cockrill, and including such other performers as Riders in the Sky, John Cowan, David Olney, Andrea Zonn and Butch Baldassari.

Scottish Guitarist Peter Cairney’s professional career began in 1971 with Contraband, a folk-rock group recording on Transatlantic Records. Contraband consisted of Cairney, founding members of Ossian, and Mae McKenna, a U.K. session singer and solo performer with whom he later toured throughout Europe, the U.K. and Japan. In addition, Peter’s guitar work has been featured on various albums with Scottish musicians, and on several recordings of both traditional and contemporary Celtic music on the Green Hills label. He toured for several years with the Scottish Orchestra of New Music, and has appeared with The Nashville Chamber Orchestra and Montpelier Chamber Orchestra as a guest musician.Throughout numerous tours and recording projects with British Country, Pop and Soul acts, Peter has held true to his Folk roots and his rich musical background has resulted in a unique style, fully evidenced in Isla. Concert reservations are strongly recommended and can be made by calling the Innstitute at (207) 963-5557 or email oceaninn@oceaninn.com. Concert Tickets $10 in advance, $12 at the door.

  • Brittany-Dunbar

Thursday, July 28th, 7:30 p.m. Oceanside M eadows Innstitute for the Arts and Sciences, presents Brittany Dunbar in concert. Brittany Dunbar, a Corea native, is returning home from Nashville to perform for the second time at Oceanside Meadows Innstitute. Not only will she be performing, but she will be releasing her first EP entitled “It’s a Woman Thing” which will be on sale after the show. Aged 18, Brittany left her hometown, and made the 1,400 mile drive to Nashville after she was in touch with a management company on Music Row. They requested a sample of her music, and she sent the only recording she had; a video that she obtained from her local news station of the coverage they had of her competing in Eastern Maine Idol, where she was placed at the top of 100 plus contestants. The response was positive, and it did not take much persuasion on behalf of the manager to convince Brittany what she needed to do. Soon after, her bags were packed, car loaded up, and she was off to conquer Music City. Once arriving in Nashville, Brittany secured a job in the famous “Printer’s Alley” where she performed with the now famous Meghan Linsey of the duo Steel Magnolia. She also obtained a bachelors degree in music business from Belmont University and is currently in her third year of law school at the Nashville School of Law. There is no denying that Brittany is a country music artist with her catching, emotional vocals, and her skillful songwriting and storytelling which grabs you immediately. As described by Cummulus Nashville radio personality Erica Fox, “Brittany Dunbar has a strong sound and presents a mix of a classic sound of Patty Loveless and Reba but a new sound with a little bit of Attitude! Don’t mistake her innocence for lack of heart, she puts it out there. “Brittany has had the pleasure of performing in Nashville at Tootsie’s Orchard Lounge, BB Kings and other famous Nashville venues where so many stars have graced the stage before her. As well, Brittany has performed at Maine’s own Hollywood Slots and Casino. This singer/songwriter is shooting for the moon. Even if she falls short she will surely land among the stars.

  • The-Cranberry

Thursday, August 18th, 7.30 p.m. at Oceanside Meadows Innstitute for Arts and Sciences :The Cranberry – Hard Work and Holiday Sauce presented by author Stephen Cole and augmented with a tasting of cranberry treats created by Sonja to tantalize your taste buds. Transformed from a wild fruit to a cultivated commodity, the American cranberry contains equal amounts of holiday symbolism and antioxidants. Its evolution over the past century is a surprising story of risk, enterprise, conflict, and the tension between tradition and innovation. It’s the story of the early growers, experimenting to find ways of turning this wild fruit into a reliable crop. Always labor intensive, the crop was first picked by locals who were replaced by Cape Verdeans and Finns, with each group having very different stories. Slow to modernization, the cranberry business eventually turned to ingenious sorters, followed by mechanical pickers, and then water harvesting. The business itself grew from individual bog owners picking and packing their crop for transport via train to the cities, to battling co-ops seeking to dominate the market. At the same time, advertising campaigns sought to make the cranberry more than a sidedish for turkey—with remarkable success that continues to this day. The cranberry is characterized by the distinctive regions where it is grown—from Cape Cod and the South Shore in Massachusetts to New Jersey to Wisconsin and to the Pacific

Northwest. But the diminutive fruit has also changed the life and landscape of these places. The Cranberry: Hard Work and Holiday Sauce harvests stories, images, and observations to tell the unusual tale of an American subculture dominated by this tart little red fruit. Stephen Cole directs the natural resources and sustainable communities programs at Coastal Enterprises, Inc., a community-development corporation. He is co-author of I Was Content and Not Content: The Story of Linda Lord and the Closing of Penobscot Poultry and author of The Rangeley and Its Region: The Famous Boat and Lakes of Western Maine. He lives in Damariscotta, Maine, with his family. The book design, and much of the photography and historical research has been done by Linda Gifford, an independent graphic designer and photographer. The evening’s tastings of cranberry treats, provided by Sonja Sundaram, co-owner of the inn with her husband, Ben, will give everyone an opportunity to experience this great little fruit. In a speech to New Jersey growers in 1883, O.M. Holmes stated: ” During the cranberry season, the gathering of the crop is paramount to everything. Schools are closed, or poorly attended, houses stand tenantless. No travel is seen along the quiet highways during business hours. But should a stranger meet the early morning motley crowd, lively, good-natured, independent in the heavy, slow work-wagons, going to their day’s work, he could not help seeing that they mean business. The Cape Codder does not work because he must. By no means. The thought is an insult.” Admission is free with all donations going to support a charity of Cole’s choice. Signed books will be available for purchase. Seat reservations are strongly recommended. Tel (207) 963 5557 or e-mail oceaninn@oceaninn.com
