It sounds like a folk festival, it looks like a Victorian dream, and it tastes like some of the best cuisine in Saratoga. For three magical hours beginning at 6:30pm on Thursday evening (March 8) Caffe Lena will take over Saratoga’s historic Union Gables Inn. The elegantly appointed rooms will be converted into mini folk clubs with oh-so-intimate performances of folk, jazz, bluegrass and pop music taking place throughout the evening. Linger in the lobby for spirits and snacks, place your bids in the silent auction, and wander the mansion to sample the cornucopia of songs.
The line-up of performers for the Caffe Lena InnVasion includes Dan Berggren of the Jamcrackers, Chuck Lamb & Ria Curley, Renehan & Mastrianni, Alex Smith, The Bluebillies, Heard, Emma Larson, Girl Blue, the Schroon River String Band, Different Than Normal, Rich Clements Band, Blind Crow, Golfstrom, Sonny Speed’s Stretching the Truth, Alan Epstein & Frank Orsini, Hui Cox & Laura Roth and J.P. Hubbs.
Tickets are available at a number of different donation levels – $60, $75, $100 & $150 – with all proceeds going to directly support Caffe Lena. Advance tickets are available online.
