Campfire DAY PASS

It started as a way to fill a bad booking weekend in 1998, but over the course of more than 10 years, the campfire. festival has become the single-biggest way that Passim develops new talent and celebrates the Boston area’s amazing music scene. Originally called, "On the Cutting Edge of the Campfire,” the festival combined the idea of artists sitting around the campfire playing music with our commitment to bringing new talent to discerning listeners. Today, the campfire. festival is as much about the community as it is about the music.

The Quebe Sisters Band

The Quebe Sisters Band (pronounced KWAY-be) takes you on a time-warp trip back to the heyday of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys, the McGuire Sisters, the Mills Brothers, and the Sons of the Pioneers. When Sophia, Hulda and Grace Quebe raise their fiddles and play, audiences marvel. When the girls sing their vintage-style three-part harmony, audiences are blown away.  Add the extraordinary rhythm guitar and swinging arrangements of Joey McKenzie and the tasty rock solid upright bass of Gavin Kelso, and the Quebe Sisters Band becomes a force of nature.

Reuniting in 2011 after a 12 year hiatus, their music features the voice, cello, guitar and glockenspiel with haunting tales of aliens, lost love, brain injured soldiers, and love renewed. Look for old favorites (from Berryhill's six albums) and some brand new songs. http://www.cindyleeberryhill.com

Chris Smither

From his early days as the hot New Orleans transplant in the Boston folk scene, through his wilderness years, to his reemergence in the 1990s as one of America’s most distinctive acoustic performers, Chris Smither has always been his own man. He has zigged when others have zagged, eschewing sophisticated studio tricks and staying true to his musical vision, surrounding himself with sympathetic musicians ranging from Bonnie Raitt and the late Stephen Bruton to the next-generation kindred spirits with whom he works today.

Poor Old Shine

From their handpainted CD cases wrought from cereal boxes to their thoughtful arrangements, Poor Old Shine, an Alt Americana band from rural Connecticut, is about honesty and handcrafted creativity. They travel with an assortment of instruments including guitars, banjos, pump organ, mandolin, string bass, musical saw, washboard, and a yard-sale-scrap-metal drum set. It’s old songs with a new feel, banjos with paint peeled, shoes with holes and treadless soles, and music that is real.
