Plume Giant, the Brooklyn-based chamber-folk trio that favors pop melodies, a miniature orchestra of sounds and textures, and Beatlesque whimsy, performs in Club B-10 at MASS MoCA in North Adams on Saturday, at 8 p.m. The group’s eclectic approach has drawn comparisons to Bowerbirds, Dirty Projectors, Sea Wolf, and Dan Hicks.
The fall cultural season is underway in the Berkshires, but it’s hard to detect much difference between the summer and fall. There’s still plenty to see and do, as there always is, in and around the Berkshires.
The summer cultural season is indeed slowly creeping to an end. Williamstown Theatre Festival has closed up shop; this is the last weekend of activity at Jacob’s Pillow, and several of the other major venues are wrapping up their summer programs before launching their fall seasons. That being said, there still is a wealth of cultural activity taking place this weekend, as there always is in and around the Berkshires. This weekend’s highlights include two programs featuring dance companies that blend classical dance and hip-hop; newly adapted stage versions of Edith Wharton stories; a new play about Hemingway and Fitzgerald; a handful of chamber music concerts, and a whole lot more.
