LIVE: Ben McGrath @ Moon & River Cafe, 11/29/11

Of all the “hothouses” in the Capital Region that nurture local talent, the Moon & River Cafe in Schenectady can claim a special niche: its open mic nights have boosted the careers of numerous performers, and its intimate setting is ideal for giving singers that critical experience of performing one-on-one and drawing an audience into their worlds. Here is Ben McGrath, longtime waiter, performing during a break during the Erin Harkes/Matt Durfee show on Tuesday, November 29.

Ben McGrath takes over the Moon & River Cafe in Schenectady at 8pm on Friday (December 23) when he’ll host a special holiday show that will also feature Kyle Miller, Chris Kovel and Mike Campana.
