Music plays a big part in the holiday season for most folks. By this point, we all likely have a fairly large collection of holiday CDs and records in our homes. But live performances really add that special touch of holiday magic and warmth to our evenings. Club Passim in Cambridge, Massachusetts offers several nights of music to help get you into a festive mood and celebrate this time of year.
