Caffe Lena’s Update for the Week of March 29th

Whether the State of New York intended it or not, there’s real poetry in reconnecting us with live music on a weekend when many gather to celebrate rebirth and renewal. We’ll open our doors to two dozen pre-registered, masked audience members on Friday, April 2nd. Opening night is sold out but we have a few tickets for Saturday, and it’s a really special show.

Now I’m going to sign this message the way I haven’t signed it for a year . . . .
 See you at the show,

P.S. That photo is restroom graffiti, a long tradition at Caffe Lena.

All shows are streamed live with three cameras & premium audio.
Limited tickets are available to attend in person.

Gabby Hammond & the Wreckless Duo

Vocalist Gabby Hammond’s powerful delivery is as much about getting to the heart of the lyric as it is about sheer vocal strength. She is one of our hardest working local musicians, entertaining crowds at bars and coffeeshops across the region. Tonight she’ll focus on her own original songs.

Biscuits & Gravy

Presented by Saratoga Acoustic Blues Society

Acoustic Blues is rooted in the pain and resilience and grit of the Mississippi Delta and the Piedmont. Generation after generation of musicians grab hold of its rhythms and melodies to pour out their hearts, tell their stories, make us laugh at ourselves, and look forward to better days. What a great finale to a year of hanging on to hope.

Robinson & Rohe – SOLD OUT
Watch from Home

It’s opening night! We kick off our post-Covid, or perhaps we should say waning-Covid life, with Brooklyn folk duo Jean Rohe and Liam Robinson. Liam is the music director of Tony-Award-Winning folk opera Hadestown. Jean is a jazz and world music artist with a gift for lyrics that will crack your heart wide open.

Saturday, April 3 / 8 PM
Michael Jerling Trio
Watch from Home

Saratoga-based singer-songwriter Michael Jerling has played the venue twice during the pandemic. How wonderful it will be to let him hear us applaud his wonderful songs. His plainspoken lyrics and rich melodies tell unforgettable stories about common people. Tonight he’ll be joined by Tony Markellis on bass and Orion Kribs on mandolin.
