In the middle of a pandemic Matt Smith of Club Passim made available to artists a massive backlog of live recordings from Passim. I stumbled across 2 shows at Passim from 2018, the year I put out a record and toured it. 2 years later, listening back to these, it is abundantly clear what a good thing we had going on, and how much I love making music with all these people. Here's a selection of tracks for your listening pleasure.
