On Saturday, November 21 at 7:30pm, Boston singer-songwriter Alastair Moock celebrates the 20th anniversary of his Pastures of Plenty series at Club Passim with an all-star line-up of local and national talent, including Vance Gilbert, Alisa Amador, Kris Delmhorst, Mark Erelli, Pamela Means, Tim Gearan, Rose Polenzani, Crys Matthews, Merrie Amsterburg, Jamie Walker, Sean Staples, Eric Royer, Anand Nayak and Paul Kochanski. Moock and a handful of his guests will perform live together from the club, others will contribute remotely. The show streams live from https:/passim.org/stream/ and on Facebook, and an online donation of $25 will be requested of viewers to support the artists and the club.
When Moock began Pastures of Plenty in Boston in 2000, the idea was to bridge some of the gaps he saw in the local music scene — between the folk and roots rock crowds, between the contemporary and traditional scenes, and between younger and older players. But what it really came down to was just bringing together some of the region’s best songwriters and musicians to swap tunes on a stage. Almost twenty years later, the series is still “the hippest hootenanny in town” (The Boston Globe).
Pastures of Plenty celebrates “the roots of American music,” and the list of guests over the years reads like a who’s who of New England and national Americana music: Bill Morrissey, Lori McKenna, Margaret Glaspy, Ronnie Earl, Barrence Whitfield, Dennis Brennan, Lisa Loeb and The Silver Leaf Gospel Singers, to name just a few. Past shows have taken place at premier venues throughout the Northeast, including the Newport and Boston Folk Festivals. But the home base for the series has always been historic Club Passim, where Moock still presents the show annually every November. Keeping with the series’ tradition of blending the old with the new, the 20th-anniversary show features some of Pastures’ most regular contributors over the years as well as a few first-timers.

Passim acknowledges that we stand on the traditional land of the Massachusett Peoples, and want to honor their land and people past and present.
