Western Swing Dance Party Begins February @ MASS MoCA [Berkshire on Stage]

Western Swing

The Hunter Center at MASS MoCA in North Adams becomes a boot-stomping ranch dance on Saturday (February 1) at 8pm when New York sextet the Brain Cloud brings its brand of Gypsy jazz dipped in big band swing. These fiddlers’ fingers are too hot for the speakeasy.

A New York City staple, the Brain Cloud is lauded by Time Out New York as “one of the city’s most dependably charming retro acts.” The group – composed of Dennis Lichtman on electric mandolin, fiddle and clarinet, vocalist Tamar Korn, Raphael McGregor on lap steel guitar, guitarist Skip Krevens, Andrew Hall on upright bass and drummer Kevin Dorn – plays where jazz meets country at the high-stepping intersection of New Orleans and Nashville.
