Effective August 6, 2021, Passim will require all staff, performers, and patrons to show proof of COVID-19 vaccine when they work, attend performances, classes, and workshops at Passim. Patrons will be asked to show their vaccination card or a photo of their vaccination card when they enter the club. Patrons will be asked to show proof each time they visit the club. If a patron is not able to show proof of vaccination they will not be allowed to attend the performance, and their ticket purchase will be refunded.
During COVID, Passim has invested in its live stream capability, and we encourage patrons who have not been vaccinated or others who don’t feel comfortable yet visiting the club to watch the live streams or attend online classes instead. If you purchased a ticket but aren’t feeling well, please stay home and watch the livestream instead.
Passim recommends that all non-performers wear masks indoors unless they are actively eating or drinking.
Passim is committed to providing a safe environment for all to work, listen, and enjoy live music. It is our hope that we can ease these restrictions once further progress has been made reducing transmission of the virus. Until then, we appreciate your patience and cooperation.
Somewhere on the musical map, where the twang of Classic Country meets the grit of Southern Soul, Hank Wonder marks a detour down a sonic stretch of unpaved road. The Boston-based trio of Annie Bartlett (fiddle and viola), Darren Buck (vocals), and Michael Loria (guitar) first came together in 2013, and have since crafted their very own soulful blend of Americana: equal parts down home and gussied up.
In November 2016, the band entered Dimension Sound Studios in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts to record its debut album with producer and multi-instrumentalist Charlie Rose (Elephant Revival, Barnstar). Little Mysteries soon emerged as a strong set of 12 originals, each penned by Buck. Skillfully engineered by Dan Cardinal (Josh Ritter, Darlingside) and mixed by Lorne Entress (Lori McKenna, Mark Erelli), these tales of Downeast canoe rides, fables of reckless children, and odes to fine bourbon reward each new listen with lush layers of production, musicianship, and songcraft.
Singer-songwriter Lisa Bastoni is a 2019 Kerrville New Folk Winner, and is a 2019 Boston Music Award nominee (Folk Artist of the Year). Her new album, How We Want to Live (September 2019), chronicles life changes, including songs about the dissolution of her marriage and learning to live a new normal — but more than anything, it finds the songwriter diving deeper into the life she craves.
How We Want to Live, produced by award-winning songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist Sean Staples, features guest performances by Mark Erelli, Rose Cousins, Lula Wiles and Naomi Sommers.
Lisa Bastoni has shared the stage with Lori McKenna, Little Big Town, Arlo Guthrie, Regina Spektor, The Secret Sisters, Teddy Thompson, and many more.
Songs from How We Want to Live have been featured in Billboard Country, Wide Open Country, PopMatters, and The Bluegrass Situation.
