Passim requires 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.

As per CDC guidelines, people are considered fully vaccinated; 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines; or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

Per CDC recommendation for best protection against COVID-19, we require an additional dose (booster) if your final shot is more than 6 months prior.

Patrons and staff must wear masks at Passim unless actively eating or drinking. Artists may remove masks when performing and will maintain a 6-ft distance from the audience.

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.

Kashena Sampson

Nashville-based Kashena Sampson made her mark in 2017 with the release of her debut record Wild Heart. The album received rave reviews and support from publications such as American Songwriter and Rolling Stone. She soon caught the eye of many respected musicians, going on to share stages with Nicole Atkins, Langhorne Slim, Amythyst Kiah, and more.

A shimmering enchantress, Sampson combines a 70’s folk-rock aesthetic akin to Nicks and Ronstadt with lungs that could shake the walls of an opera house. She has garnering comparisons to prominent acts such as Cat Stevens, Bobbie Gentry, and Bonnie Raitt. On September 10, 2021, Kashena released her long-awaited sophomore record Time Machine. Based on its positive response, it’s safe to say that Sampson’s star is quickly on the rise.

“If her debut offered an initial promise that Sampson was a timeless voice for the years, Time Machine is a 24-carat confirmation that she belongs in the ranks of the greats. Her gold will not tarnish.” – Folk Radio UK
