This event is presented in collaboration with Common Folk Artist Collective.

Arc Iris has attracted fans from across the world, as well as critical attention from NPR, The New York Times and Rolling Stone for their charismatic stage performances, and lyric and melody-based, experimental dream-pop. Through their diverse influences, singer, Jocie Adams, keyboardist, Zach Tenorio-Miller and drummer, Ray Belli find avenues for producing a blend of soul-satisfying sounds that are truly their own. The band is coming off of an international tour for their second album, Moon Saloon, released last fall.

North Adams based band, Francesca Shanks is comprised of Francesca Shanks on the ukulele and Joe Aidonidis on the keys and drums.
