The Northeast By Eastern

November 13, 2016, 1:00 PM


Film, history and live music combine to illustrate a way of life from a simpler, more patient, yet enterprising American era. Film & Music by Sumner McKane. Live Music by Sumner McKane & Josh Robbins.

For years, Belfast, Maine-based Eastern Illustrating and Publishing Company sent traveling photographer-salesmen on the roads all over New England and beyond with cameras, catalogues, and order books, seeking buyers and markets for their unique “real photo” postcards. The Northeast by Eastern combines these early 20th century photographs with archival film footage, interviews, oral histories and Wiscasset-based Sumner McKane’s music, performed live by Sumner and Josh Robbins. Combined, these stories and images illustrate an era unlike any other in American history. The audience hears first-hand accounts of smuggling during prohibition, of river drivers brawling for fun, of growing up without worry and without constant adult supervision, and of slop buckets spilling on tourists’ pies. A fabulous treat! (Unrated but would be G, 65 min.)

All tickets only $12!
