Birds, “birdsongs,” and mr. Barry at the Brick Store Museum
April 9, 2015
KENNEBUNK, MAINE – The Brick Store Museum and popular musician Monica Grabin join together to present a new show called Birds, “Birdsongs,” and Mr. Barry, on Tuesday, May 5, 2015, at 7:00pm in the Museum’s Program Center. Grabin, branching out from singing history, has created this show about birds and birders. The program is co-sponsored by the York County Audubon Society.
In addition to Grabin’s Birdsongs, audience members can expect to find the Museum’s collection of taxidermy birds on display for the evening, and will have the chance to test their skills at identification of the birds with the help of York County Audubon Society members. The collection of Northeast birds came from William Barry (1849-1932), an architect, historian, and preservationist from Kennebunk. Museum Director Cynthia Walker will be on hand to talk about Barry himself. Grabin’s Birdsongs concert will complete the evening, taking a look at songs we sing about birds, and some that she has written which poke fun at our efforts to get to know them better. Both entertaining and informational for birders and non-birders alike!
Tickets are $8.00 per person, $4.00 for Museum and York County Audubon Society members. Tickets may be purchased at the door, or ahead of time at www.brickstoremuseum.org/programs. Space is limited, be sure to arrive early!
