Williamstown, Massachusetts—The Clark Art Institute continues its Music on the Moltz Terrace concert series with a performance by Garcia Peoples on Sunday, June 23. Mountain Movers opens. The free concert takes place on the Lunder Center at Stone Hill’s Moltz Terrace at 5 pm.

The dynamic band Garcia Peoples, featuring guitarists and vocalists Tom Malach and Danny Arakaki, drummer Cesar Arakaki, bassists Andy Cush and Derek Spaldo, and keyboardist P.G. Six., was formed in Rutherford, New Jersey. The group takes inspiration from the improvisational and psychedelic jam bands of the 1960s. With a stash of live recordings accumulating at the Live Music Archive, Garcia Peoples’ music is very much a living entity.

Mountain Movers, an underground rock band from New Haven, Connecticut, opens. The band includes vocalist Dan Greene, guitarist Kryssi Battalene, bassist Rick Omonte, and drummer Ross Menze. The group's music is a blend of Neil Young/Dinosaur Jr. songcraft, with fiery leads provided by Battalene, who takes inspiration from Japanese psychedelic rock.

The next concert in this series takes place on Sunday, July 28 and features Glenn Jones, with Emily Robb opening.

For accessibility concerns, call 413 458 0524. Bring a picnic and your own seating. This concert is presented in collaboration with Belltower Records, North Adams, Massachusetts. Rain moves the performance to the auditorium, located in the Manton Research Center. For more information, visit
