Bela Fleck at the Calvin Theater
Northampton, MA
Thursday, Nov 1oth @ 8pm

Enter to win a pair of tickets to see Bela Fleck at the Calvin Theater on Thursday, Nov 10th! Deadline to enter to win: Sunday, 11/6 @ 7pm.

Hilltown Families and Iron Horse Entertainment Group have partnered up to offer a chance to win free tickets to see adult venues in the Pioneer Valley for a PARENTS’ NIGHT OUT! You pay for the sitter, we’ll pay for the tickets!

For the beginning of November we have a pair of tickets to giveaway to see Bela Fleck at the Calvin Theater in Northampton, MA on Thursday, Nov 10th at 8pm. Win the tickets and take your spouse, partner or good friend for a night out. Deadline to enter to win is Sunday, 11/06/11 @ 7pm (EST). Details below.


Groundbreaking banjoist/composer/bandleader Béla Fleck has reconvened the original Béla Fleck & The Flecktones’, the extraordinary initial line-up of his incredible combo. Rocket Science marks the first recording by the first fab four Flecktones in almost two decades, with pianist/harmonica player Howard Levy back in the fold alongside Fleck, bassist Victor Wooten, and percussionist/ Drumitarist Roy “Futureman” Wooten. Far from being a wistful trip back in time, the album sees the Grammy Award-winning quartet creating some of the most forward thinking music of their long, storied career. While all manners of genres come into play – from classical and jazz to bluegrass and African music to electric blues and Eastern European folk dances – the result is an impossible to pigeonhole sound all their own, a meeting of musical minds that remains, as ever, utterly indescribable. Simply put, it is The Flecktones, the music made only when these four individuals come together.


Your chance to win a pair of tickets to see Bella Fleck at the Calvin Theater in Northampton, MA on Thursday, Nov 10th, 2011 @ 8pm, is as easy as 1-2-3 (4)!

    We live at the intersection of three counties, so it’s great to have a source of information that covers them all (and more!)

    Thanks Hilltown for the tip about Mt. Holyoke College Art Museum. We’re studying ancient civilizations in homeschool. We planned a trip for Western Mass. Homeschoolers and about 20 kids will be going, not counting adults. We can’t wait to see their exhibit.

    I’m relatively new to the Berkshires so I’m mostly familiar with the southern Berkshires. I love finding out about all these lovely little towns north of me, and knowing about all the various events going on ALL THE TIME, from concerts to theater, to apple picking. I moved here to live in the country and HF keeps me informed of all the wonderful things country life has to offer.

    Hilltown Families does such a great job of listing EVERYTHING that’s going on in the area, and the fact it’s automatically emailed to me (rather than me having to visit the site) once a week assures that I read that list of “everything.” : ) Thanks!

  27. October 20, 2011 at 11:55 am

    I am constantly kept up to speed on things happening all over the area. A real life performance type date night is so overdue at my house it’s embarrassing, so thanks for the opportunity!
