A phenomenal young guitarist, Courtney Hartman is at the forefront of a new generation of acoustic musicians. She has performed in Scotland, Slovakia, Italy, and throughout the US, won numerous guitar flatpicking championships, and is currently studying on scholarship at Berklee College of Music. Matt Glaser, fiddle legend and chair of Berklee’s American Roots Music program called Courtney “an extraordinary bluegrass guitarist and a fluid, inventive improviser… one of the finest musicians I have ever had the privilege of working with.” Jazz guitar virtuoso, Julian Lage, says of Courtney, “It has been a true privilege to watch Courtney grow as a player and I feel that she is one of the great guitarists of our generation. Her greatness is born out of unconditional listening and a commitment to the meaning of the music in every song she plays. She doesn't play anything that isn't rooted in her love for the music."
Every Thursday from the middle of June until the middle of September, Club Passim presents the Passim/Berklee Summer Concert Series on Palmer Street in Harvard Square. The concerts are held weekly from 1PM - 2PM.
