Grammy-award winner Patty Griffin will join Josh Ritter, Dar Williams, and special guests to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Passim with a benefit concert at the Boch Center Shubert Theatre on Thursday, November 14!
Proceeds from the performance will benefit Passim, a nonprofit music organization dedicated to providing exceptional and interactive live musical experiences for both performers and audiences. Since first opening its doors as Club 47 in 1958, Passim has been one of the country’s premiere listening rooms, showcasing talent that has helped to shape generations of musicians and fans in the United States and beyond.
Founded in 1958 as Club 47, Passim is best known for the role it played in the folk music revival of the sixties when it helped launch the careers of Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell. It was run by Bob and Rae Ann Donlin during the seventies and eighties, and was relaunched as a non-profit when they retired in 1994. In recent years, the club has continued to serve as an all-ages incubator giving artists a place to develop their craft and find their voice.
Passim’s 60th Anniversary Concert is generously supported by Folk Americana Roots Hall of Fame, an initiative of the Boch Center.
