You can keep the music alive.


2015 was a huge year here at Caffè Lena. We presented 282 artists, 82 open mics, as well as 20 collaborative events with other area nonprofits.

Caffè Lena’s ability to find and invest in emerging artists is a direct result of your generosity and patronage. When you support our programming, you are supporting the entire Capital District music scene and beyond, because we grow artists for the big stages. Your gift to the Caffè Lena Annual Fund directly supports this process. It is because of our donors that Caffè Lena is able to remain, after fifty-five years, essential to the past, present and future of American roots music.

As you revisit your favorite Caffè Lena memories from the year – making a new musical discovery or enjoying a new favorite, reconnecting with an old friend or making a new one – we ask that you make a gift to the Caffè Lena Annual Fund. It is only with your generosity that we are able to keep musicians, poets and storytellers on our stage each and every week.
