Be Here Now: Music at the Mahaiwe
Over in Great Barrington, Mass., the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center has announced its upcoming season. Unfortunately, there isn’t much on tap that makes me want to gas up for a drive to the Berkshires – except maybe veteran comedian Robert Klein, whose September 12 performance is the gala fundraiser for the Fairview Hospital.
And really, are folks going to pay $34.50 to see jam band faves the Yonder Mountain String Band on Thursday, July 9, when they could catch the band at Revolution Hall in Troy just a week and a half earlier on Sunday, June 28?
For just $17.50? Which is just about half price…
Anyway, here are some of the musical highlights of the upcoming Mahaiwe concert calendar:
Friday, June 5, 8pm: Bjorn Again ($45/$30)
Friday, June 26, 8pm: Keller Williams ($32)
Sunday, July 5, 3pm: Dan Zanes & Friends ($25/$20)
Thursday, July 9, 8pm: Yonder Mountain String Band ($34.50)
Saturday, August 8, 8pm: Don McLean ($80/$50)
Friday, September 11, 8pm: Big Bad Voodoo Daddy ($42)
Saturday, September 12, 8pm: Robert Klein ($50)
Sunday, November 15, 3pm: Jane Monheit ($32)
Friday, December 18, 8pm: John Pizzarelli ($60/$40)
Sunday, February 7, 3pm: Ladysmith Black Mambazo ($39)
