WILLIAMSTOWN, MA—The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute continues its tradition of presenting free family-friendly outdoor summer band concerts on Tuesdays in July beginning at 6 pm. On July 10, the exciting and magnetic band Misty Blues will perform “blues you can groove to”—rock and folk songs infused with classic blues sounds.

Misty Blues features lead vocalist Gina Coleman, guitarist and vocalist Jason Webster, bass guitarist and vocalist Bill Patriquin, and drummer Kali Baba McConnell. The band has produced two albums, Electric Juke Joint and Roadhouse Revival, a danceable twist on traditional gospel music. Misty Blues proclaims on its website that they “pay homage to the older blues music made popular by the bold and brassy women of its time while still paying respect to the more contemporary female artists that carry on their rich tradition.”

The Clark’s family-friendly outdoor band concert series offers a wide array of bands with diverse musical styles. The series continues with Banjo Dan and the Mid-nite Plowboys on July 17, New England bluegrass at its best, and concludes on July 24 with the Latin guitar world-fusion group Incendio, taking instrumental Spanish guitar music to new and uncharted artistic levels. The summer band concert series is sponsored by Williamstown Savings Bank.

Throughout the series, barbecue fare will be available for purchase and the galleries will remain open for visitors until 6 pm. In the event of rain, concerts will be held in the auditorium.
