“The Ballad of Tam Lin,” an Iguana Music-funded folk-rock opera, is taking to the stage to celebrate its release with a full-band, full-cast performance. Written by Molly Pinto Madigan, this project re-tells the Scottish tale of “Tam Lin” in an exciting, modern way, with some of the hottest names in folk music bringing the characters to life. Vance Gilbert, Mark Erelli, Alec Hutson, Jenee Halstead, Lyle Brewer, Julian Loida, Eva Walsh, Sam Margolis, and James Heazlewood-Dale and more brought their unique talents to the album. Come see it performed live in a special one-night show at Club Passim!
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.
Effective September 3, 2021, 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 https://www.cambridgema.gov/covid19/facecoverings for full information on the Cambridge mask mandate.
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.
