MASS MoCA Announces Fall/Winter Concerts/Events Calendar

August 3rd, 2016, 1:00 pm by Greg

MASS MoCA in North Adams heads into the fall season with the sixth annual FreshGrass Festival on September 16-18, a rollicking weekend largely devoted to artists in roots and acoustic bluegrass music. And the schedule of concerts and other events powers through until December when Dinosaur Jr. takes the stage in a night of power-grunge.

In between, swoon for British singer-songwriter Benjamin Clementine in the Hunter Center and the multi-talented Eisa Davis up in Club B-10.

And witness artist Nick Cave’s Until, perhaps the most powerful, poignant and political work that MASS MoCA has exhibited in the sprawling Gallery 5.
