WILLIAMSTOWN, MA—On Tuesday, July 24, at 6 pm, the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute presents the Latin world-fusion group Incendio as the final concert in its series of free family-friendly outdoor summer band concerts. Barbecue fare will be available for purchase and the galleries will remain open for visitors until 6 pm. In the event of rain, the concert will be held in the auditorium.
With a unique alchemy of composition, technique, and performance that combines seductive melodies with explosive improvisatory journeys, Incendio takes instrumental Spanish guitar music to new and uncharted artistic levels. The band has released seven critically acclaimed international CDs, with the bold, romantic Spanish guitar at the heart of every track and its timeless sound recast in powerful modern arrangements. Incendio—which performs more than 150 shows throughout the United States every year—is renowned for their onstage energy and fretboard wizardry.
Williamstown Savings Bank sponsors the summer band concert series, which this year featured The Eagles Band, Misty Blues, Banjo Dan and the Mid-nite Plowboys, and Incendio.
