Aug 27, 2014 - campfire.festival at Club Passim! 

Club Passim is an historic place and one of the most important folk clubs in this country. It was founded in 1958 as Club 47 and has hosted everyone from Bob Dylan to Joan Baez to Tom Rush, Shawn Colvin and Joni Mitchell. And that's a very short list, the names go on. I am humbled and honored to be sharing the stage at such a venue with my friend and gifted songwriter, Tracie Potochnik, as we play our first official gig together as a duo. 

The campfire.festival is four days of incredibly talented songwriters/musicians assembled together to share their songs and stories. It's an incredible weekend where you can discover some amazing performers that you may have never heard. Tracie and I will be playing on Sunday, August 31 at 4:30pm. Can't wait!! Hope you can make it!
