Audrey Flack and the History of Art Band

Audrey Flack and the History of Art Band

East Hampton’s own Audrey Flack, celebrated painter and sculptor, exhibited nationally and internationally in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney, The Guggenheim, etc., and one of the original ground breaking artists of the Photorealist movement, brings her History of Art Band to the Parrish Art Museum's Lichtenstein Theater.

Flack is a banjo player and has a passion for American Old Time and Bluegrass music. Using her rich knowledge of art history and the art world, she writes lyrics about artists with an insiders perspective. You will be treated to original songs about Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Vincent Van Gogh, Caravaggio, Picasso, Mary Cassat and Camille Claudel. 

The band will also be debuting new songs on Marc Chagall, Camille Claudel, and Willem de Kooning, as well as a Rembrandt blues song. And “the new expanded History of Art Band now has the best spoon player & mandolin player on the East End" says Flack.

Members of the band, Johnny Jackpot, banjo, Adam Grimshaw, guitar & banjo, Deborah Grimshaw, fiddle, David Roger Grossman, Bass, Ben Fraker mandolin and Connie Evans spoons are top musicians known in the downtown music scene. The band has performed at Caroline’s Comedy Club on Broadway, The Roger Smith Hotel in mid-town Manhattan, for the inauguration of the president of Cooper Union, The Institute for Feminist Art at Rutgers University and the Yale Art Museum.

Friday Nights are made possible, in part, by the generous support of The Corcoran Group and Bridgehampton National Bank.
