Come to the Gardens for an unforgettable multi-media presentation on Maine’s legendary lumbermen and river drivers. Combining film, photography, oral histories, and a live musical soundtrack performed by Sumner McKane and Joshua Robbins, “In the Blood” creates a virtual journey into the 19th century Maine woods and brings the audience into a turn-of-the-century lumber camp, onto a river tangled with logs, and onto a haul road sitting behind a team of horses. By employing various mediums to deliver historical documentary materials, the story of some of Maine’s most notable historical characters is vividly brought to life.

Sumner McKane is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, and filmmaker based in mid-coast Maine. He combines film, oral histories, and live music to create live “docu-exhibits.”  He also tours with the Don Campbell Band and teaches at the Midcoast Guitar School and the Buckdancers Choice Music School.  He is the husband of our own much-loved Membership & Database Services Manager, Jen McKane.
