Caffe Lena Preparing For a Star-Studded Summer With Judy Collins, Bela Fleck and More
Lena’s executive director sarah craig talks with saratoga living about the performance space’s amazing summer schedule.
Anyone who’s passed through Saratoga Springs surely knows about Caffè Lena. Founded in 1960, the intimate performance space and cafe is hallowed ground for many musicians. It’s one of the first venues where a young Bob Dylan played back in 1961 (before Dylan even had an album). Since then, Saratoga’s most famous small venue has helped launch the careers of other well-known acts including Boston-based folk quartet Darlingside and Sawyer Fredericks, who won Season 8 of The Voice.
