West Stockbridge – In the upcoming warm months, The Foundry continues to provide the Berkshires with diverse multidisciplinary performance.
For fans of contemporary edgy music, SUO, the solo project of Brooklyn-based musician and artist Saara Untracht-Oakner (of BOYTOY) appears in May. Gold Casio, a New-York-based crew, harnesses irresistible indie-dance melodies and high-energy performance. Rockers will appreciate Thelma and the Sleaze, an independent all-female, queer southern rock band from Nashville, Tennessee coming in July.
Returning for a third year this August is the band Billy Wylder featuring Avi Salloway joined by an inspired cast of singular artists who have performed across five continents. In the same month, Hudson Valley reggae-inspired The Big Takeover makes a return appearance.
Also in August, jazz and blues lovers will enjoy both the Skyla Burrell Band as well as Madame Pat Tandy with Charlie Apicella and Iron City. And classical music fans will appreciate pianist Chelsea Randall in a solo recital of modern and contemporary Black composers.
In addition to the musical line up, the venue continues to present comedy, cabaret, theater, dance and their Emerging Artists Series giving platform to young talent.
Collaborations supporting local community groups such as the West Stockbridge Historical Society, West Stockbridge Wisdom Lodge and Pittsfield High School Chamber Orchestra remain part of the venue’s mission as well as donating The Foundry Green every summer to the WS Farmers’ Market and the WS Visitors’ Center on the venue’s property.
