Downtown Pittsfield, Inc. will present Indoors Out! Music on North on Friday, October 1, 5-7 pm, at Sotille Park, Persip Park, and the parklet at the Marketplace Cafe. The three downtown locations will feature free outdoor performances by local performers who have also played with Berkshire Busk. The performances will be presented in partnership with First Fridays Artswalk which will occur from 5-8 pm on October 1.
At Sotille Park, 200 North Street, enjoy singer/songwriter Jaane Doe’s blend of country-tinged Americana, folk, and pop music, the product of many magical encounters along her musical journey.
At Persip Park, 175 North Street, you can enjoy Garrin Benfield’s freestyle acoustic rock. His music is a blend of moody, guitar driven rock and polyrhythmic groove, all run through the filter of a very serious singer/songwriter. Playing eclectic sets at hundreds of shows every year, Benfield has become an underground favorite at festivals, rock clubs, coffeehouses, and house concerts.
The Marketplace Cafe’s parklet at 53 North Street will feature The Midnight Anthem: a musical trio made up of Catherine, Sophia and Grace, cousins by birth, but sisters at heart. The group has an uncanny knack for creating music that is both fun to listen to and touches the soul, and their music is an entertaining blend of original songs and popular tunes with a country flair.
Indoors Out! Music on North is presented by Downtown Pittsfield, Inc. and funding has been provided by the Commonwealth Places Program created by MassDevelopment.
