On Saturday July 15th, acclaimed Folk Festival favorites Spuyten Duyvil(pronounced "SPITE-en DIE-vul") bring their infectious, original spin on American roots music and alternative folk rock to Cambridge MA.  In 2016, their CD, "The Social Music Hour Vol. 1", received an International Folk Music Awards' "Album Of The Year" Nomination.  They kick off their 2017 summer season with a fresh round of re-imagined traditional songs and their new International Folk DJ Top 20 single "The Warmth Of Other Suns".  Borrowing novelist Richard Wright's phrase and paying homage to Isabel Wilkerson's (http://isabelwilkerson.com/) thought provoking, timely and moving book of the same name, this inspiring song of resistance is available as a free download. 

“This is as close to a musical "Come to Jesus" moment as you'll get outside the gospel roots of the deep south. Yonkers, NY based Spuyten Duyvil are the real deal when it comes to roots revivalist Americana music. Historians, outstanding songwriters, accomplished musicians and a musical family atmosphere converge to make some of the most outstanding music around today.”  - The Alternate Root TV

Opening for Spuyten Duyvil is Amy Kucharik, a ukulele-slinging singer-songwriter based in Somerville, MA. The 2015 Kerrville Grassy Hill New Folk winner explores the full range of her instrument's capabilities as a tool to convey a complex array of subjects and moods: Whether humorous, topical or intense, she steers listeners away from the ukulele's perception as a merely twee novelty instrument. At the same time, Amy wants her audience to have a good time, and her performances are infused with Vaudevillian charm and an infectious, danceable swing.

About the venue:  Established as Club 47 in 1958 and incorporated as a nonprofit in 1994, Passim has been a cornerstone of the arts community of New England for over half a century. Located in the heart of Harvard Square, Club Passim is one of the few “listening rooms” in the greater Boston/Cambridge area. It’s a place where audiences and artists can interact with one another in an intimate setting.
