The Mount (2 Plunkett St., Lenox, MA 01240)
The Wanda Houston Band returns to the Mount, a quartet performing music of the 1930s through 1970s with a blend of rhythm, blues, jazz and soul.
The Mount will present live music from globally-inspired jazz to indie blues in a beautiful outdoor setting, every Thursday from July 14 to August 18.
