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.
Starting Feb 1st, we’ll be requiring a third 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.

“My whole adult life has been this journey of trying to figure out where home is,” says Ryan Montbleau. “I think I’ve finally found it.”
Set to roll out across four distinct EPs, Montbleau’s ambitious new album, Wood, Fire, Water, and Air, marks the acclaimed songwriter’s first studio release since putting down permanent roots in Burlington, VT, where he recently purchased a house after more than two decades of living on the road. While much of the material here was written over the past several years, it’s clear that the desire for stability was on Montbleau’s mind even before he settled down, and the songs reflect a maturity and self-awareness that can only come from the difficult work of rigorous self- examination. Montbleau sings about more than just himself, though, mixing sly humor and deep revelations to craft a broad, insightful collection exploring the ties that bind all of us perfectly imperfect humans together.
Hailed by NPR’s Mountain Stage for his “eloquent, soulful songwriting,” Montbleau first emerged from New England in the early 2000s, building his reputation on ecstatic live shows that balanced boisterous rock & roll energy with intimate folk introspection. Over the past 20 years, he’s collaborated with artists as diverse as Martin Sexton, Trombone Shorty, Tall Heights, and Galactic, shared bills with stars like Tedeschi Trucks Band, Ani DiFranco, The Wood Brothers, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and Mavis Staples, and racked up more than 100 million streams on Spotify alone.
