Friday July 31, 2020 – Carinae
Carinae is an unstable star in the constellation that is the Western Massachusetts music scene. Three part vocal harmonies orbit around patchwork guitar and keyboard textures laced with driving rhythms. Lyrics that bring you home and stretch you out. Star gazing in an open field.

This is the fifth year that the Northampton Arts Council is presenting summer concerts in Northampton, continuing a long-held tradition that dates back to the 1970’s. Since that time, this area has been fertile ground for producing unique original music, often renowned on the national level. Our mission is to showcase the best music from the Pioneer Valley as well as top notch touring acts that bring together the community to enjoy our picturesque downtown. Due to Covid-19, the format of this year’s series has changed to a live streaming format to avoid crowds, and to respect social distancing orders while still bringing together local and nationally recognized artists to create beautiful sounds for the people of Northampton.
