BEST FOLK-MUSIC CLUB
Founded as Club 47 in 1958, this cellar spot in the alley between two buildings of the Harvard Coop remains Greater Boston’s venerable home for folk music, blues, and even a little jazz—pretty much any flavor of music played for active listeners. 47 Palmer St. 617–492–7679; passim.org
For all its tight quarters and stiff chairs, Passim is a legendary venue, and people still flock here to be a part of its history. Audiences enjoy the intimate concerts; artists love the quiet, attentive crowd that always seems to “get it.” The sense of community at the heart of folk music is thick in the room, and that community is the only reason the club survives. –Yankee Magazine September/October 2008
