Just letting you know that tomorrow I'll be at Valley Hands during Northampton Arts Night Out, making glass beads along with another jewelry artist Lisa Oram. This is a FREE EVENT, a fun and creative way to spend the evening. Artist Demonstrations and Acoustic Guitar by Corleen Roberts from Agawam. Friday, July 9th 4-8pm, watch glass beadmaking, listen to some music, have a sip of wine & a snack,chat with the artists, pull up a chair and Watch Art Develop!
Then on Saturday and Sunday, I'll be in Springfield at the Hoop City Jazz Festival! The festival is free to all and offers a stellar line up of entertainment, including many Grammy Award winners on stage along with Springfield’s own Greg Caputo’s Big Band. This year’s performers include: Terence Blanchard, Average White Band, Elan Trotman, Zoe with Cindy Bradley, Kashif, Ken Navarro, Greg Caputo’s Big Band, Ed Fast & Conga Bop, Soul Source, Modern Riffs, and the Springfield Youth Chorus. Looks like a lot of fun and a chance to hear some great music. Hope to see you there!
Finally, I'll be in Pittsfield again next week for their Third Thursday event which shuts down the main street in Pittsfield, opening it up for a festive evening of live music, new art, including many folks from our AWM sister group BerkshireMade, great dining & shopping late!
