Williamstown, Massachusetts—Relive the magical music of the British Invasion with Across the Pond, a popular Beatles tribute band performing at the Clark Art Institute on Tuesday, July 24 at 6 pm. The free concert, the last of the Clark’s summer concert series, will be held on the lawn. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs, and picnic meals. In the event of rain, the event will be held in the auditorium, located in the Manton Research Center.
Across the Pond strives to capture the exuberance of a live Beatles show, including later songs the Beatles recorded but never performed in concert. Covering Beatles music from early rock and roll to romantic ballads and the mature songwriting of the later years, Across the Pond focuses on faithfully rendering the music of the Fab Four without trying to impersonate them.
The band, based in Hudson Falls, New York, was founded in 2006 by guitarist and vocalist Marc Clayton. Band members also include Jonathan Newell on bass, keyboard, and vocals; Tim Wozniuk on drums, percussion, and vocals; and Joe Tucker on lead guitar and vocals.


The Clark Art Institute, located in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, is one of a small number of institutions globally that is both an art museum and a center for research, critical discussion, and higher education in the visual arts. Opened in 1955, the Clark houses exceptional European and American paintings and sculpture, extensive collections of master prints and drawings, English silver, and early photography. Acting as convener through its Research and Academic Program, the Clark gathers an international community of scholars to participate in a lively program of conferences, colloquia, and workshops on topics of vital importance to the visual arts. The Clark library, consisting of more than 270,000 volumes, is one of the nation’s premier art history libraries. The Clark also houses and co-sponsors the Williams College Graduate Program in the History of Art.
The Clark, which has a three-star rating in the Michelin Green Guide, is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts. Galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm; open daily in July and August. Admission is $20; free year-round for Clark members, children 18 and younger, and students with valid ID.
