Misty Blues pays homage to generations of blues music and the the bold and brassy women who perform it, classic artists of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. They also perform classic rock and folk tunes infused with a healthy dose of the blues.

The Mount will host a lineup of live music, ranging from globally-inspired jazz to indie blues, in their outdoor theater in the dell every Thursday from July 14 to August 18.

Misty blues band founder and lead singer Gina Coleman entered the music scene in the early 90’s as the lead singer of the folk/rock group Cole-Connection. In 1999 she played a gospel singer in the Williamstown Theatre Festival production of A Raisin In The Sun and started down the path of blues.

The lead actor in the production, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, told Coleman that he felt her voice was well suited to sing classic blues, and actor/singer, Mandy Patinkin agreed,seeking her out after seeing the opening performance of the production. After actress Gwyneth Paltrow commented on her performance, Coleman knew a musical shift was imminent. Guitarist Jason Webster and bassist Bill Patriquin from Cole-Connection came on board, and the Misty Blues began.

Seeing a deficit of blues music in the Berkshires at the time, they felt the musical change would be well received. Since then, Misty Blues has produced ten albums, and today the core members includes Gina Coleman, Seth Fleischmann, Bill Patriquin, Ben Kohn, Rob Tatten and Aaron Dean.

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.
