See the Burnurwurbskek Singers on Friday, July 16 from 10am - Noon

Enjoy traditional Wabanaki music in the third performance of the Abbe Museum's Music-by-the Sea concert series. On Friday, July 16 from 10:00 to noon the Burnurwurbskek Singers will perform beside the historic site of the original Abbe Museum at Sieur de Monts, within Acadia National Park.

The Burnurwurbskek Singers are a traditional Wabanaki men's drumming and singing group. The audience will have the opportunity to experience this group's lively performance in the great outdoors, and watch and learn some traditional Wabanaki dances performed by members of the Penobscot Boys and Girls Club. Between sets, there will be time to talk with the talented Native musicians that comprise the Burnurwurbskek Singers. Samples of their music can be heard at the Burnurwurbskek Singers official MySpace page at,>.

In the event of foul weather, the Burnurwurbskek Singers will perform inside the Circle of the Four Directions at the Abbe Museum's downtown location at 26 Mount Desert Street in Bar Harbor.
