Best reason to miss Game 7 of the World Series
Okay, maybe for some, there's no good reason to leave the glow of the television set on such an Important
Night in Baseball History, but there's a reason local singer-songwriter Christopher Williams packed Club
Passim to the gills despite the sports mayhem (not to mention Emmy excitement) going on across the city
recently. With his sweet, soaring vocals, lush guitar work, and thumping djembe hand-drum, Williams has
been gradually making a name for himself on the folk scene, playing with the likes of Bruce Hornsby,
Ellis Paul, Tom Rush, and Patty Larkin. A rigorous touring schedule (120-plus shows annually) keeps
Williams on the road much of the year, but the musician returns home to Boston whenever he can, even
managing to record a live album, side streets - live, at Club Passim earlier this year.
With so much talent, we might even forgive him for rooting for the Yankees.
