“North African desert blues (or Tichumaren in Tamasheq, the Tuareg language) has become arguably the most successful world music genre to break through since reggae — and few performers have wielded the guitar with such mastery and majesty as Bombino,” (The New York Times). Bombino’s previous records, produced by the likes of The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth, were recorded in Woodstock and Boston. His latest, Deran, was made in Casablanca and earned him a Grammy nomination this year. Come early to celebrate new art in Kidspace.

If the weather holds, we’ll be outside in our concert courtyard. Grab dinner in downtown North Adams or here on campus before the show. Our bar is always well-stocked with Bright Ideas Brewing beers and Berkshire Mountain Distillery spirits.
