The Wallflowers to Perform at Mahaiwe

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center announces the American rock act the Wallflowers, Jakob Dylan's Grammy-winning outfit, will perform live on its stage on Friday, May 20 at 8 p.m. 
"We're excited to bring the Wallflowers to the Berkshires," says Mahaiwe Executive Director Janis Martinson. "A headlining talent like Jakob Dylan is a great reason to shake off the winter and come out for live music this spring." 
According to a press release, ror the past 30 years, the Wallflowers have stood as one of rock's most dynamic and purposeful bands – a unit dedicated to and continually honing a sound that meshes timeless songwriting and storytelling with a hard-hitting and decidedly modern musical attack. That signature style has been present through the decades, baked into the grooves of smash hits like 1996's "Bringing Down the Horse" as well as more recent and exploratory fare like 2012's "Glad All Over."  
In 2021, the Wallflowers released "Exit Wounds." The collection marks the first new Wallflowers material since "Glad All Over."
