Patty Griffin shines all by herself at Club Passim
“It's always good to scare yourself half to death,” said Patty Griffin as she stood alone with a guitar on stage, no band to protect her. Though it's been years since she's played full shows entirely solo, she need hardly have worried. Saturday was the first of two consecutive nights at Club Passim that together sold out in four — count ’em, four — minutes. Some in the audience admitted to becoming Passim members solely to purchase tickets. She would have had to screw up pretty badly to let anyone down.
