From her first number one recording, “He’s A Rebel”, through her string of label hits with legendary producer Phil Spector, to the countless songs she sang backup on for artists like Sam Cooke, Elvis Presley, Dionne Warwick, Cher and Aretha Franklin, Darlene Love has blazed a trail of success in the music industry and was inducted into the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame in 2011.
The New York Times says: “Darlene Love’s thunderbolt voice is as embedded in the history of rock and roll as Eric Clapton's guitar or Bob Dylan's lyrics." She will bring her holiday show to The Mahaiwe in Great Barrington, MA on Friday, November 29th.

This Saturday and Sunday, a dozen of Washington County, New York’s best artists will open their studio doors and invite us inside to see their latest works and talk about the creative process.
