Palaver Strings - Musical Storytelling


Presented by Bay Chamber Concerts Sunday, August 18 | 3:00 PM | Hammer Hall, 5 Mountain St. Camden, ME


Palaver Strings presents a FREE performance of Delvyn Case’s Lighthouse Keeper specifically for children (ages 4-10) and families. Based on the inspiring story of Abbie Burgess Grant, the teenager who tended a lighthouse off the Maine coast during one of the greatest Noreasters of the nineteenth century, the story inspired classic children’s book, Keep the Lights Burning, Abbie. The courage and determination of this young girl in the face of extraordinary adversity made her a cult hero in 19th-century America.

In this interactive musical performance, Palaver Strings invite children to sing along with the narrator, urging her to face her fears as she climbs the lighthouse stairs, chips the ice off the great windows high above the raging sea, and steadies her hand as she lights the wicks of the great beacon.

Bring the whole family for an afternoon of exploration through active listening, movement and musical expression.

3:00 PM to 4:00 PM
