Maine and NH friends, please catch WCSH 6 tonight for their “207” program at 7pm to see Don Campbell along with the rest of the band (including yours truly). We shared 2 songs from the “Kites to Fly” CD in preparation for our shows this weekend in Camden and Kennebunk.
For everyone that is “from away,” here’s the video.
A big thanks to Rob, Beckie, Danny, and everyone at “207.” It’s always great to be a part of what you do.
Hey. A pretty cool thing is shaping up for this winter.
The Sumner McKane Group (of which I am a member) will be reprising our live score/film event. We are once again presenting our live original score for the silent film “Nanook of the North,” which includes the group performing live, accompanying a screening of the film. It’s a truly unique and dynamic experience, where the music from the band and motion of the film combine and create a concert event like none other. It’s honestly one of my favorite pieces of music I’ve ever been involved with.
This was written and first performed in the spring of 2008. We’ve reprised it several times since then. We even got a chance to record the score, rearranged as a stand-alone CD/digital download, and it was generously received by NPR’s Echoes program, who came to Sumner’s place to do a Living Room concert.
And now, several years later, we will be performing it live once again in New England. Stay tuned here for updates on events as they are announced. If you are interested in booking/presenting the Sumner McKane Group performing our live score to “Nanook of the North,” please email me here.
