Message from the Director

Welcome to the Passim community! Whether you’re an artist, instructor, student, or patron, we hope that you’ll find a home here. Established as Club 47 in 1958 and incorporated as a nonprofit in 1994, Passim has been a cornerstone of the arts community of New England for over half a century. Located in the heart of Harvard Square, Club Passim is one of the few “listening rooms” in the greater Boston/Cambridge area. It’s a place where audiences and artists can interact with one another in an intimate setting. We present music with a folk aesthetic, emphasizing the relationship between performers, patrons, teachers and students. Our music covers a broad range of musical genres – Americana, bluegrass, blues, Celtic, country, folk, jazz, klezmer, old-time, pop/rock, singer-songwriter, a cappella, world music, and more—and all of it sounds great in our small, cozy venue. We hope that you'll become a member and support Club Passim and help us provide another half century of great music to the Boston area!

Jim Wooster
Executive Director
