Take a break on Sunday afternoon and stop by Club Passim, where renowned composer and guitarist Muriel Anderson will be performing. Anderson has played with icons including Chet Atkins and Les Paul—yes, the Les Paul. You can learn more about her here (and you’ll want to, if only to see a photo of that wild looking harp guitar).
