About the Sessions

Shire City Sessions is a four time, free summer music series. Every Monday night from July 25th to August 15th the Sessions brings local and nationally-recognized acts to Pittsfield’s revitalized Common Park stage in a celebration of music and community.

Who’s behind the Sessions?

In 2015 a group of local business owners joined forces to share their love of music with the community. They are committed to making The Sessions free, accessible, and fun!

Why free?

Because of the generous contributions from local businesses and supporters, our community is able to experience nationally-known music in their own backyard. If you would like to donate, feel free to contact us!

Why Monday Nights?

Monday nights are a respite from the hustle and bustle of the Berkshire summer season. The Sessions wanted to offer a chance for local families and those typically working behind the scenes to enjoy a night of their own.

Family Fun

Located in the beautifully renovated park at The Common, The Sessions provides a welcoming environment for families. Aside from the great music, there is a lush lawn for picnicking, a playground, basketball courts and a splash pad for summer fun!

Food & Drink

Let us handle your dinner on Monday nights… The Sessions offers an affordable array of locally-made food and handcrafted beer from local vendors.
