Over There and Back Again

Over There and Back Again at the Brick Store Museum, Main St, Kennebunk, ME

November 11, 2018, marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the “War to End War,” a phrase coined by H. G. Wells, and used to describe the carnage that befell the world between 1914 and 1918. To commemorate this, Monica will be giving a Singing History performance, focusing on both the end of the war, and what followed here at home in the decade that followed. Songs of World War 1 are poignant and often devastating, but the Nineteen-twenties produced some of the most fanciful and best-loved of all our popular songs. Monica has a trove of these songs, spanning many different genres, that she’s excited to share. Join her at 7 p.m. on Sunday, November 11th, at the Program Center of the Brick Store Museum in Kennebunk for an evening of memories.    



Living Through the Sixties

Living Through the Sixties at the Brick Store Museum, Main Street, Kennebunk, Maine

We tend to think of the Sixties as a free-wheeling good time, but much of the decade was anything but. National traumas like the war in Vietnam, the battle for Civil Rights at home, and dissatisfaction with government came to a head in the tumultuous year of 1968.  Having lived through that time, and with the benefit of hindsight, Monica Grabin will present songs which shine some light on the era, along with stories of her own experiences. And although the times were difficult, there are a lot of inspiring and hopeful songs too, which helped us all live through the Sixties.  This concert is sponsored by the Brick Store Museum in conjunction with their current exhibit:  1968: The Year that Changed History.  



An Evening of Bob Dylan songs

The duo digs deep into Dylan’s catalog, from the early sixties to the present. If you’ve attended any of their sold-out all-Bob concerts in Kennebunk, or wish you had, here’s a chance to revisit some of the greatest songs of the last 50 years or so with First Person Plural and Nobel laureate Robert Zimmerman.
