Fodor's Review

Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive—thousands of folkies have strummed and warbled their way through Club Passim, one of America's oldest (1958) and most renowned clubs for Americana and roots music. The cozy brick basement has a new kitchen that's open for weekday lunch to all, but dinner is only available to ticket holders. If you travel with your guitar, call about open-mike nights. Classes and workshops at their school around the corner carry on folk traditions. Acoustic bands perform here nightly; expect to pay a $10–$20 cover.
