Club Passim presents a weekend festival featuring the best in acoustic music from New England and beyond! Come check it out - it's only $12 per day or $20 for a weekend pass!!
The Cutting Edge of the Campfire is the premiere New England music festival, showcasing over 100 artists each Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend at the legendary Club Passim. Since it's inception in 1998, the festival has brought in the best in folk, bluegrass, blues, jazz, world, rock and country music to full houses from noon until 2am each day of hte 4-day event (with over 50 hours of music!).
Artists from all over are invited to play the festival, and this time we have performers from as nearby as around the block to as far as Chicago, Seattle, Toronto and even England! Performers mostly play in a round-robin format with three or four artists on stage at a time, swapping songs. You're apt to see spontaneous collaboration throughout the event, as well as special guests popping on stage for a song or two. The Campfire Festival was created to celebrate the emerging talent that we've found all over the country, but many of hte biggest names in acoustic music have donated their time and talents to the Festival, including Ellis Paul, Melissa Ferrick, Josh Ritter, Stephen Kellogg, Erin McKeown, Peter Wolf, and Al Kooper. This time around come down to catch Boston rock legends Willie Alexander, David Minnahan, Laurie Sargent and Asa Brebner in an intimate acoustic setting!
Club Passim's Cutting Edge of the Campfire Festival has also garnered support from many local businesses and nationally renowned music festivals and organizations including BMI, Newport Folk Festival, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Apple & Eve, Signature Sounds Recording Artists, Cake Records, Whole Foods and radio stations WERS and WUMB.
The Cutting Edge of the Campfire Festival is the only indoor festival of it's kind, bringing hours of new talent into a legendary venue for such an affordable price ($20 for a weekend pass, $12 for a day). For a full schedule and to buy tickets, visit http://www.clubpassim.org/campfire]h
