Live From New York 20th Anniversary Reunion
Live From New York 20th Anniversary Reunion feat. Edie Carey, Teddy Goldstein, Anne Heaton, & Andrew Kerr. Melissa Ferrick opens the 9pm show.
Award-winning singer-songwriters Edie Carey, Teddy Goldstein, Anne Heaton and Andrew Kerr have been close friends since they met in the vibrant New York City folk-pop scene of the late 90’s and early 2000s, hanging at open mikes in the West Village, sharing brand new songs, and learning together how to do music for a living. They shared shows here and there in various pairings, but it wasn’t until they put together a showcase of New York songwriters for a music conference and dubbed it “Live From New York” that their collective synergy onstage, both musically and comedically, was undeniable. They interspersed deeply moving songs and rich harmonies with hilarious off-the-cuff repartee. Someone once likened a Live From New York show to watching a musical episode of Friends where everyone is Phoebe. What was supposed to be a one time showcase quickly became a pretty magical side project for them, and soon Live From New York was performing at festivals and listening rooms across the country. They toured together for several years, recording an album in 2002, and then all four set off on their own, rich musical paths. Come see these dear friends and seasoned songwriters reconnect and harness the same synergy, soulfulness, and hilarity they always experience in each others’ company. Don’t miss this great evening of expert songwriting and killer humor.

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.
The City of Cambridge has issued an emergency order requiring that face masks or coverings be worn in indoor public places. 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. Visit cambridgema.gov/covid19/facecoverings for full information on the Cambridge mask mandate.
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.
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.
Colorado-based singer-songwriter Edie Carey (originally from the Boston area) is known for her unmistakable, soulful voice, her intelligent, heart-grabbing songs, but perhaps most especially for her warm, engaging presence on – and off – stage. As much a part of her show as the music itself, Carey’s wry and often self-mocking humor makes audiences feel as though they have just spent an evening with a very close friend.
Carey has been singing at festivals, colleges, and listening rooms across the US, Canada and Europe since 1999, performing alongside Sara Bareilles, Brandi Carlile, Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett, and Shawn Mullins. She’s also been a featured artist on PRI’s Mountain Stage. She’s appeared at the country’s most prestigious folk festivals including Telluride Bluegrass, Rocky Mountain Folks, Newport Folk, 30A Songwriters, and Cayamo. She released her 9th album, “Paper Rings: 8 love stories,” in February 2016. Her prior release, a duo lullabies project with Sarah Sample, garnered several children’s music awards, including Best Children’s Album in the 2015 Independent Music Awards.
Teddy Goldstein is known as much for his clever songs – whether sensitive or comedic – as for his energetic and unpredictable shows.
Originally from outside of Philadelphia, Teddy attended Boston University’s theater program before moving on to Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. Teddy has released four independent records and one album with the group, “Live From New York” with Edie Carey, Anne Heaton, and Andrew Kerr. Teddy’s music has been heard on such T.V. shows as NBC’s Meet My Folks, The WB’s Everwood, Summerland, and Felicity, as well as CBS’s The Unit and NPR’s Car Talk.
Music Festivals & Stages: Teddy is a regular at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall, The Cutting Room, The Bitter and Boston’s Club Passim. He has performed at The Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and The Kennedy Center.
As a songwriter Teddy has had publishing deals with, Spirit Music Group, Cherry Lane Music and BMG. In 2004, Teddy received a Gold Record for his song “Maria” on the Album Lovers Forever by Marshall and Alexander. Over the years Teddy has shared stages with artists such as Marshall Crenshaw, Dan Bern, Todd Snider, Ellis Paul, Lucy Kaplansky and Steve Forbert.
Singer-songwriter and pianist Anne Heaton has captured audience imaginations for over fifteen years with her songs that are, by turns, “tender, barbed and spiritual” (Washington Post). She’s been featured by the New York Times Popcast, played numerous times on NPR and shared the stage with artists such as Jewel, Sarah McLachlan and jazz drummer Max Roach. The New York Times music podcast called her music “absolutely gorgeous” and with “To the Light,” her seventh studio album, due out this November, Heaton is surrendering to her love of collaboration more than ever before.
Other songwriters who contributed to the album include Natalia Zukerman, Shannon McNally, Beth Wood, Mai Bloomfield, Steve Dawson, Chaska Potter, Duke Levine, Frank Marotta, Jr., Meg Hutchinson, Jennifer Kimball, Erin Zindle and Laura Donohue. Even Heaton’s own daughters contributed by coming up with the initial ideas for the “Celebration Song” and the “Donut Song!”
The album also includes a storybook! In addition to the music, Heaton has crafted a book of stories, one to go with each song. Every song will have a tale of how it came to exist along with the creativity keys that inspired its completion.
Andrew is an Evanston based singer-songwriter who has toured nationally, playing folk festivals and sharing the stage with artists such as John Mayer, Matt Nathanson, Marc Cohn, Shawn Colvin, The Weepies, John Gorka, Dar Williams, and Susan Werner.
