Hallways Episode 002 - Patty Griffin

You’ve hopefully heard us talk about a new project we have in partnership with the Folk Americana Roots Hall of Fame – a podcast called Hallways.  

If you haven’t been to the FARHOF, you should check it out. You can visit for information, but basically The Hall is housed in the Wang Theatre in Boston and it celebrates the history of Folk, Americana and Roots music through displays, memorabilia, artifacts, multi-media, lectures and concerts.  

As much as any city in the country, Boston has been the musical birthplace for the styles and artists we celebrate, making it a fitting home.  While performing recently at the Wang Theatre, Neil Young said, “Boston is the Folk Music capital of North America.”  

And who are we to argue with a recently sworn in American Citizen.  

We were fortunate to talk with the wonderful Patty Griffin before her performance at Club Passim's 60th birthday event. We’d like to share this Hallways episode with you to introduce you to the new podcast and hope you will not only visit The Hall but also subscribe to Hallways on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts and to follow us on our socials. 

 For that matter – do the same with ATB – visit to subscribe and follow us to.   

We can all follow each other.  

Thanks!  Here we go…
