Help keep this remarkable venue here for listeners and artists alike!
The last few months have been unlike any the Caffè has experienced in recent memory. In addition to incredible performances week in and week out, we could not have asked for a warmer reception for the release of the Caffè Lena History Project book, Caffè Lena: Inside America’s Legendary Folk Music Coffeehouse, and companion CD set, “Live at Caffè Lena.” From the New York Times to the Times Union to Vogue Italy, the story of your beloved Caffè is reaching people near and far, reminding friends new and old of the role Caffè Lena plays in the music world, both yesterday and today.
With the excitement around Caffè Lena’s place in music history growing, it is more important than ever to keep this venerable venue alive, and we cannot do it without you. Ticket sales go a long way, but cannot meet the full cost of operations, even with our tightly-focused budget. We ask you to consider a contribution toward Caffè Lena’s annual fund. By making a donation, no matter what time of year, you ensure Caffè Lena’s mission of providing a stage for emerging songwriters, poets and storytellers; a stage for tradition bearers to keep our cultural roots alive; and a place for all members of our community to come together in goodwill.
We hope you will consider giving generously to the Caffè’s annual fund.
