The Doerfels Rock the Clark

For Immediate Release

June 28, 2011

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA—The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute’s lineup of outdoor summer band concerts begins on Tuesday, July 5 at 6:00 pm with the acclaimed family bluegrass band The Doerfels, who performed at the Clark in 2009 to a packed audience and rave reviews. Bring your family and friends, a picnic basket, and a blanket for this free concert sponsored by Williamstown Savings Bank. Barbecue fare will be available for purchase and the galleries will remain open until 6:00 pm. In the event of rain, the concert will be held in the auditorium.

One of today’s most exciting and unique groups The Doerfels perform lively progressive acoustic music that is a blend of rock, bluegrass, gospel, country, and jazz. The Doerfels consists of the oldest sibling and leader TJ on banjo, as well as Kim on the fiddle, Eddy on mandolin, Joey on bass and cello, and Ben on guitar. In the last three years, these talented young musicians have performed more than 200 concerts a year, and have shared the stage with artists like Ricky Skaggs, Asleep At The Wheel, and The Isaacs. The Goldwing Express calls the band “a force to be reckoned with.”

Admission is $15 June 1 through October 31. Admission is free for children 18 and younger, members, and students with valid ID. Admission is free November through May.
