(WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass.) — The Clark’s outdoor summer band concert series begins on Tuesday, July 5, 2011, at 6 with the acclaimed family bluegrass band the Doerfels, who performed at The Clark in 2009 to a packed audience and rave reviews. One of today’s most exciting and unique groups, The Doerfels perform lively progressive acoustic music that is a blend of rock, bluegrass, gospel, country, and jazz.
