BEATLES TRIBUTE
Lenox, 7 p.m.
The groundbreaking Beatles album, “Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,” was released in 1967. To celebrate this seminal moment in rock history, the Lenox Library is hosting a free Beatles Concert at the Lenox Town Hall . The event is organized by Professor of Music Dr. Jeremy Yudkin of Boston University, where he teaches a wildly popular course on the Beatles. Yudkin has gathered musicians from all over the Berkshires and beyond to come and recreate all the songs on the album, going from the beginning of Side One to the end of Side Two. This free concert will start with a couple of brief illustrated talks, one by Dr. Yudkin and one by musicologist Michael Nock, that will place the album into the historical context of the Beatles' career and show why the music is so special. The concert is free and attendees are encouraged to wear period attire - the psychedelic 1967 period, that is.
