Richard Shindell in Concert at the Clark March 26

For Immediate Release

March 11, 2004

Singer-songwriter Richard Shindell will perform at the Clark Art Institute on Friday, March 26, at 8 p.m. The critically acclaimed folk rocker will present his eclectic songs ranging from lighthearted ballads to diatribes that skewer politics, prejudice, war, and religion.  Tickets are $20 ($18 for members). To order tickets, call 413-458-0524.

An "expatriate New Yorker" now living in Argentina, Shindell is revered in contemporary acoustic music circles as a recording artist and live performer. Critics have compared Shindell to Bruce Springsteen, Lucinda Williams, and REM's Michael Stipe. A recent concert led New York Times critic Ann Powers to write, "Occasionally an artist has a night that makes even skeptics think, 'OK, maybe he is the best.' Richard Shindell achieved this."  He has recorded six CDS including 2002's Courier and a forthcoming recording with Buenos Aires group Puente Celeste.

The Richard Shindell concert is the final performance in the Clark's series, Songs and Stories.

The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts.  For more information call 413-458-2303 or visit
