    Concert Performance.  Venue / performer relationship 

    A beautiful library venue close to Cape Cod with a wonderful series of presentations of which I'm always proud and happy to be a part of. 

  • December 2017

    December 23, 2017

    Concert performance

    Solo

    music, Irish harp, singing, poetry, storytelling.

    Club Passim is a folk club located in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA that hosts a variety of folk and ethinic music styles seven nights a week.  I tend to do a show there at least once a year, often during the winter months.  I enjoy a good relationship with the folks there and they do a great job on advertising since their system is in place.  People do come a distance even in cold weather despite Harvard Square parking!  Great location for live music.  Wonderful people and dedicated staff and volunteers!
