Singing on an Iceberg in North Adams – June 29, 2017
Sing on an iceberg, you say? Sure, why not! Inside the Berkshire Art Museum, housed in a former church, a giant installation was erected by the artist/owner, Eric Rudd, called “Iceberg”. It allowed people to climb up and along it, via a narrow pathway, and that is where we were perched to entertain the visitors during North Adams’ Downstreet Art night. As people meandered through the exhibit halls, we sang a selection of our uptunes and ballads. While we started out as “background music”, we soon had the patrons “shushing” each other and applauding and even whistling for some of our more popular tunes.
Though we had a challenge at times due to being strung out along the iceberg, overall it was a great experience. We were able to participate in North Adams’ Downstreet Art and bring our sound to northern Berkshire County. – by Leslie Murray
