Norfolk, CT–Eric Gales performance
Mar 8 @ 8:00 pm

Eric Gales grew up in a musical family with four brothers, two of them who learned to play the guitar upside down and left handed in the same fashion that Eric does. Eric released his first record at Age 16 for Elektra records to an amazing response from the media and music fans around the globe. Guitar World Magazine’s Reader’s Poll named Eric as “Best New Talent,” in 1991. After recording a second record for Elektra, all three brothers teamed up for The Gales Bros. “Left Hand Brand” which was recorded for the House of Blues label in 1996.

Through the years, it would not be unusual to look out in the audience and see artists like Carlos Santana, Eric Johnson, B. B. King, and Eric Clapton, looking on with interest as Eric took his guitar and worked crowd after crowd into a frenzy.

As both an African-American left-handed guitarist of extraordinary ability and an expressive vocalist, it is natural for people to compare Eric to Hendrix. But Eric has developed a unique hybrid blues/rock sound that also draws upon influences as diverse as Albert King and Frank Gambale. A unique amalgam of styles, Eric Gales stands head and shoulders among other guitarists in his genre.

Norfolk, CT–THE SOUL REBELS with JOATA @ Infinity Music Hall
Mar 11 @ 8:00 pm

Poetry In Motion Tour–“Brace yourselves folks, these men are quickly solidifying themselves amongst NOLA’s proud big brass elite… and seem intent to sublimate the homogenoustones of the contemporary urban music landscape with the lush instrumentation of our culture’s root.” – OKAYPLAYER

The Soul Rebels started with an idea – to expand upon the pop music they loved on the radio and the New Orleans brass tradition they grew up on. They took that tradition and blended funk and soul with elements of hip hop, jazz and rock all within a brass band context. The band has built a career around an eclectic live show that harnesses the power of horns and drums in a deep pocket funk party-like atmosphere. The Soul Rebels continue to chart new territory as they feature in major films, tour globally, and combine topnotch musicianship with songs that celebrate dancing, life, funk and soul.

Thu
Norfolk, CT–Gary Hoey performance @ Infinity Music Hall
Mar 12 @ 8:00 pm

Whether he’s playing scorching originals or classic rock covers, his solos are thrilling and reminiscent of Clapton or Stevie Ray in their fiery youth. One thing that remains consistent is Hoey’s impassioned command of the guitar. He can attack his instrument with feral intensity and then play something very soft and achingly beautiful. This ability to mix feeling, phrasing, technique and tone is the true mark of a master guitarist.

“Neon Highway Blues”, Gary’s latest release, carries its 11 tracks with the confidence and assuredness of a veteran, and the freshness of someone who’s still in the process of discovery and refinement — with the help of famous friends such as Eric Gales, Lance Lopez, Josh Smith and Hoey’s 17-year-old son Ian Hoey. The release of “Neon Highway Blues” will, of course, take Gary Hoey back on the highways and byways for plenty of touring and playing, well, the blues — and more. He can’t yet predict where the next road will take him, but Hoey is confident it will be an adventure.

Norfolk, CT–Dana Fuchs performance @ Infinity Music Hall
Mar 13 @ 8:00 pm

With Dana Fuchs, all bets are off. The singer’s dazzling career began in the early aughts when she ignited the New York club scene with a run of soul-drenched albums and a voice acclaimed by Classic Rock magazine as “juke-joint dirty and illicit, evoking Joplin, Jagger and a cigarette bobbing in a glass of bourbon”.

Now, this fearless artist rips it up and starts again with Love Lives On, the hotly anticipated fourth album on which Dana fights back from personal tragedy with a sound inspired by the siren call of American soul. “This album is all about hope and perseverance,” she says. “It’s a new beginning for me in every way…”

Gt. Barrington, MA–Close Encounters With Music: The French Connection – Saint-Saëns, Debussy, Fauré @ The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center
Mar 21 @ 6:00 pm

$28 Upper Balcony / $52 Mezzanine & Orchestra

Mahaiwe Member Discounts do not apply for this performance.

The greatest period of creativity among French composers coincides with the emergence of Impressionist art. Attempting to define that French “je ne sais quoi” is as elusive as describing a bottle of Château Petrus. But, as exemplified by the music of Fauré (Piano Quartet No. 1), Debussy (the prophetically daring cello Sonate), Saint-Saëns (Rondo Capriccioso) and Lili Boulanger (D’un matin de printemps), tension between elegance, restraint and intense fervor is a hallmark of the French aesthetic. There is passion, powerful emotion and a remarkable level of concentration. The mood is sensuous, pleasure-oriented, delicately colored and shimmering with élan. Refinement is balanced with brilliant instrumental display in what is one of Fauré’s rare virtuoso pieces, in Saint-Saëns’ violin showpiece and Debussy’s 1918 captivating master work for cello. For sheer glamour and artistic vitality, late 19th and early 20th century Paris has not been surpassed and gave rise to lasting new isms and musical portraitists who created some of the best loved classical music of today. It’s the magic that was Paris.

Norfolk, CT–10,000 Maniacs @ Infinity Music Hall
Mar 27 @ 8:00 pm

One of the most critically acclaimed bands of the last three decades, 10,000 Maniacs were founded by Robert Buck, Dennis Drew, Steven Gustafson, John Lombardo and Natalie Merchant in the fall of 1981. Jerry Augustyniak joined in 1983. Together with artists like R.E.M. they defined college rock and created the first wave of alternative rock bands and what became known as the alternative rock format on FM radio.

The band has covered plenty of ground in its 35-plus years, from cult-herodom to international stardom, to their current status as a cornerstone alternative band. But the sound and spirit of 10,000 Maniacs remains consistent. The live shows embrace their entire catalogue, and the lineup is still anchored by four of the six original members.

Lenox, MA–Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire @ Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum
Mar 28 @ 3:30 pm

Victorian tea:  Celebrate the Centennial of Woman Suffrage with this hilarious parody of the arguments against females voting. They sound crazy now, but for 72 years, those arguments denied women the ballot and equal rights. Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire pairs pro-Suffragist Marie Jenney Howe’s 1913 “An Anti-Suffrage Monologue” with a lively lecture explaining why women’s voting would lead to anarchy, financial ruin, and “make every home a hell on earth.” Performed by professional actress Michèle LaRue and directed by Warren Kliewer, Someone Must Wash the Dishes has toured coast-to-coast, garnering reviews ranging from, “Better than the best stand-ups!” to, “I would have learned a lot more in school if she had been our teacher!” This performance is made possible thanks to the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum’s “100 Events for 100 Years” initiative commemorating the 2020 Women’s Suffrage Centennial. A Victorian tea will follow the performance. Cost to attend is $28 with an advance reservation and $32 the day off. Reservations are strongly recommended as seating is limited. Call us for a reservation at (413) 637-3206.

Soulful and innovative multi-instrumentalist and singer Zach Deputy started his career serendipitously, landing a solo gig in his early 20s by walking into a bar just after that night’s featured artist had bailed. Deputy soon introduced the world to the sound he’d eventually dub “island-infused, drum ‘n’ bass, gospel-ninja-soul.”

By 2008 he’d released his debut album Out of the Water and-thanks to his ingenuity in looping-made his name as an unforgettable one-man-band live act. The new music kept flowing, and since then Deputy has released four critically acclaimed full length studio albums

Norfolk, CT–RED WANTING BLUE @ Infinity Music Hall
Apr 26 @ 8:00 pm

Hailed as “Midwestern rock heroes” by American Songwriter, Red Wanting Blue has spent the last twenty years establishing themselves as one of the indie world’s most enduring and self-sufficient acts, notching appearances everywhere from Letterman to NPR and reaching #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, all while operating largely outside the confines of the traditional music industry. For their powerful new album, ‘The Wanting,’ the band handed production duties over to acclaimed singer/songwriter Will Hoge, who helped them create their most ambitious, fully realized collection yet. Recorded in Nashville, TN, the record draws on many of the group’s traditional strengths—indelible melodies, infectious hooks, explosive performances—even as the making of it pushed them far outside their comfort zone and forced them to take an unprecedented, nearly year-long break from touring.

“…terrifically funny dialogue …the debate at the heart of this play transcends comedy and demands serious attention.” —Variety

In this blistering comedy an exacting fact checker takes a famous writer to task for bending the reality of a tragic incident to serve the art of his narrative in the retelling of it. The survival of a prominent magazine depends on the article being a success. Sparks fly and a deadline looms as the editor referees a pitched battle between accuracy and the truth, and who’s to say what that is?

“So canny in its writing and presentation, The Lifespan of a Fact may not only inspire audiences to think more closely about the sources from which they get their news, but maybe even to question the accuracy of the social media memes they’ve been liking and forwarding.” —Broadway World.

Gt. Barrington, MA–Close Encounters With Music: Celebration of an Immortal Genius – Beethoven at 250! @ The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center
May 23 @ 6:00 pm

$28 Upper Balcony / $52 Mezzanine & Orchestra

Mahaiwe Member Discounts do not apply for this performance.

The prototype of the romantic artist who overcomes adversity, the composer’s composer, and exemplar of artistic freedom and bold expressive power, Beethoven left an indelible mark that forever altered the landscape of classical music. This program will chart three stations in a glorious history: Sonata No. 2 opus 5 for Cello, where he is still following a historic trajectory as a student of Haydn; the Violin Sonata No. 7 in C minor opus 30 from his Middle period as he moves towards his zenith; and the Olympian “Archduke” Trio. Each is a sublime masterpiece representative of his career from young composer-performer to the start of his struggle with deafness and the cruel end of his own performing career. Apart from his dynamic energy and compositional genius, we are also drawn to Beethoven the man, with his musical expression of a utopia where people live together in harmony and his political aspirations for humankind. Ludwig van Beethoven turns 250 in December 2020, but is forever contemporary, relevant and fresh.

The Nashville Beat with Fabrizio and the Fever @ the Colonial Theatre
May 29 @ 7:00 pm

Join us in a high energy night of music. There will also be a special performance by RO/BMS Winter Rock band, an outgrowth of the Rock On and Berkshire Music School initiative to provide year-round music programs for teens in downtown Pittsfield.

The Richie duPont Scholarship Fund was established in 2005 in memory of a talented young actor who performed in two of BTG’s Main Stage productions. This fund provides summer camp scholarships, so children can pursue their dreams of being on stage.

Fabrizio and the Fever is an alternative-rock entity formed in 2013 by Berkshire native singer, songwriter, artist and entrepreneur, Michael Fabrizio. The band, dubbed “genre-gypsies,” pulls from a plethora of inspirations including country, rock, Americana, folk-rock, as well as pop and hip-hop influences.

West Stockbridge, MA–The Suffrage Project: a WAM Theatre Play (Where Arts and Activism Meets) @ The Foundry
Jun 4 @ 7:00 pm

“a chance to get beyond stereotypes and have meaningful conversations that ordinarily wouldn’t happen.”

This year marks 100 years since the 19th Amendment was passed which allowed women full rights to vote. Full removal of racial disenfranchisement of citizens was not secured until the Voting Rights Act of 1965 gained passage through Congress following the Civil Rights Movement. For state elections, it was not until the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-3 in Harper v. Virginia Board of Elections (1966) that all state poll taxes were declared unconstitutional as violating the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. This removed a burden on the poor, including some poor whites who had been disenfranchised. It is in celebration of this centennial, as well as in acknowledgement of its complicated history and the battles of citizenship still to be won, that WAM has chosen this topic for our 2020 ensembles.

THE SUFFRAGE PROJECT will culminate in an original performance devised by WAM’s Elder Ensemble. In addition to the Elder Ensemble, WAM Teaching Artists will be running devising workshops on the topic of suffrage and citizenship with: Immigrants (in collaboration with BRIDGE’s Women to Women Group), Veterans (in collaboration with Soldier On!) and with a new intergenerational People of Color Ensemble led by WAM’s Associate Producing Director Lia Russell-Self.

Professionally, this duo is a major success, but privately, this couple’s conflict leads to one hilarious song after another.  They’re Playing Our Song is a romantic and delightful musical treat.

Norfolk, CT–Bob Schneider @ Infinity Music Hall
Jun 11 @ 8:00 pm

Bob Schneider is an Austin, TX based singer/songwriter, and former front-man of The Ugly Americans and The Scabs. Schneider’s musical approach as a solo artist has proved to be as eclectic as the diverse musical styles of his former bands, combining the traditional singer/songwriter aesthetic with elements of funk, country, rock, and folk. His scruffy good looks and strong, husky voice attracted some attention, too, but it was Schneider’s music — redolent of ’70s icons from Neil Young to Paul Simon, with a slightly more modern sensibility reminiscent of Beck and edgy lyrics about alienation, drug addiction, and lost romance — that maintained his high profile around Austin.

Gt. Barrington, MA–Close Encounters With Music: Café Music – Jazz, Rap, and World Premiere! @ The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center
Jun 13 @ 6:00 pm

Paul Schoenfield’s runaway classical hit, Café Music for piano trio, sets the tone for this celebration of summer. Combining ingredients of classical music, jazz, klezmer and whimsy, Café Music is irresistible and full of energy—caffeine-fueled music at its most entertaining. Claude Bolling’s classical/jazz musings in the Suite for Cello and Jazz Trio (double bass and percussion) offer up interpolations of boogie-woogie and ragtime with Baroque underpinnings, not to mention sizzling panache. Gershwin, who “made an honest woman of jazz,” is represented with his Three Preludes for Piano. Close Encounters continues its commissioning program with the unveiling of a new work by Tamar Muskal for tabla drums, cello and rap artist, featuring Avirodh Sharma, who has performed at Lincoln Center, the Joseph Papp Public Theater, the Joyce, Harlem Stage, and Joe’s Pub. Of Muskal’s music, the Chicago Tribune has written: “The ripples and shimmers that filled Muskal’s post-minimalist score were as evanescent as swirling, digitized visuals—dissolving into one another with kaleidoscopic beauty…high-tech music theater at its most inventive and fascinating.”
