Mark Erelli Swings into Town July 26 for the Last Band Concert of the Season at the Clark

For Immediate Release

July 12, 2005

The artfully blended contemporary folk and western swing sounds of Mark Erelli and the Hillbilly Pilgrims will conclude the free summer band concert series at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute on Tuesday, July 26 at 6 p.m. on the south lawn. Picnics, lawn chairs, and blankets are encouraged. On concert evenings, the galleries will be open until 6 p.m. Admission to the concert is free. In the event of rain, the concert will be held in the auditorium.

Having attained an uncommon musical maturity while still in his twenties with four albums, over 500 concerts and multiple awards and acclaim, Erelli is firmly planted in modern roots music. “Hillbilly Pilgrim,” Erelli’s newest CD, is an entire album of western swing originals. The Hillbilly Pilgrims, the four-person band he collaborated with on the similarly titled album, will accompany him at the Clark.

The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The galleries are open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in July and August (closed Mondays September through June). Admission June 1 through October 31 is $10 for adults, free for children 18 and under, members, and students with valid ID. Admission is free November through May.
