BTG launching new series in its Garage

PITTSFIELD — Berkshire Theatre Group is launching a new series this month, the $10 Music Garage, which is devoted to presenting emerging musicians and regional talent.

Arc Iris has attracted fans from across the world, as well as critical attention from NPR, The New York Times and Rolling Stone for their stage performances, and lyric and melody-based, experimental dream-pop.

North Adams based band, Francesca Shanks features Francesca Shanks on the ukulele and Joe Aidonidis on the keys and drums.
