Club Passim is a venerated acoustic music club just across from Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. It is run by a membership-funded, non-profit arts organization which keeps the small, intimate setting largely as it has been since the basement location was first set up as a music venue in 1947.
With the recent surge in bluegrass and Americana music in the Boston area, Passim has become a regular hangout for the young musicians in the area, including those studying at Berklee and the New England Conservatory.
We’re reported in the past on Mile Twelve, a very talented group of youthful grassers who met in the midst of Boston’s flourishing music scene. The band consists of Evan Murphy on guitar, BB Bowness on banjo, Nate Sabat on bass, and Bronwyn Keith-Hynes on fiddle. They had reported back to us during their recent trip to Ireland.
Here’s Mile Twelve at a recent performance at Club Passim demonstrating what they know about the music of The Stanley Brothers in a video shot by LiveSyphon.
