Soulful Margaret Glaspy (Boston)

more about Boston and the soulful music and people one can find there on any given night, if you know where to look

Recently I began staying at the Clarridges’ house in Jamaica Plains outside Boston during my regular trips to teach at Berklee.. More about them soon, although definitely check out their cool fiddle band, the


Boston is sort of becoming the epicenter of acoustic music, i.e., fiddles, mandolins, banjos, etc… playing styles derived from celtic, old time, bluegrass, and other stuff.  And the Clarridges along with their gang are a big part of this. So is Berklee College of Music, and the instigator of all instigators, Matt Glaser, who is now running Berklee’s new roots music department.

Anyway I arrived late at night at the Clarridges to find Margaret Glaspy singing in the living room. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more of her.
