For many years, a group of local musicians have come together in North Adams on Saturday mornings to play traditional music, just for the pleasure of it — Quebeçois reels and Irish jigs, Southern tunes and ragtime, old New England and contradance music. They perform on fiddle and concertina, percussion and winds and whatever instruments they choose to bring along.

They play from around 10:30 to noon, sometimes longer, as the weather and their day unfolds. As the pandemic allows, they are now back indoors in Lickety Split, the cafe at Mass MoCA.

Their music is always free, and anyone is welcome to listen, sit in and jam, dance in the grass or enjoy however the spirit moves them.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
