Club Passim Emerging Artists Night Featured Act

Honeysuckle is a progressive folk act that blends older influences and traditional instrumentation with modern effects and inspiration.

Comprised of Holly McGarry, Benjamin Burns, and Chris Bloniarz, the trio can frequently be found performing in the Boston area and surrounding cities in the Northeast, playing alongside bands like Boy & Bear, Shook Twins, John Craigie, Grey Season, and others.

In 2015, Honeysuckle performed at Newport Folk Festival, was chosen as a Converse Rubber Tracks artist, and was nominated for Best Folk Artist of the Year, and Best Americana Artist of the Year at the annual Boston Music Awards. In 2016 the group played Lollapalooza on the Pepsi Stage as well as CMJ in New York City.

A recipient of Club Passim’s Iguana Music Grant, Honeysuckle has two current releases, the full-length “Live at Rockwood Music Hall,” and the EP, “Arrows.”



Club Passim Emerging Artists Night

For the first time, the Second Friday Coffeehouse presents a performance planned and curated by the great talent scouts of Club Passim.

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. They present music with a folk aesthetic, emphasizing the relationship between performers, patrons, teachers and students. Their music covers a broad range of musical genres – Americana, bluegrass, blues, Celtic, country, folk, jazz, klezmer, old-time, pop/rock, singer-songwriter, a cappella, world music, and more—and all of it sounds great in our small, cozy venue.

Thanks to First Church member, Jim Wooster, who happens to also be the Executive Director of Club Passim.
