Club Passim, the long-running folk venue in Cambridge, has a new executive director: Jim Wooster, who's been the business manager for GlobalPost and served on Passim's board of directors, starts Tuesday.

He succeeds outgoing executive director Dan Hogan to run the club that first opened its doors back in 1958. Back then it was Club 47, which became a mainstay on the national folk scene and provided a stage for people like Joan Baez, Bob Dylan and Mississippi John Hurt, among others.
