Caffe Lena Presents: Bluegrass Night with the Pandemic Pickers

September 16 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT

Free

Caffe Lena hosts a bluegrass jam on the third Wednesday of every month. This interactive live stream will feature the hosts of those jam sessions as a full quintet, with their new name: the Pandemic Pickers. They invite you to break out your instruments at home and play along! They will perform bluegrass standards that are popular requests at their jam sessions, and will announce the key for each song beforehand.

Caffè Lena offers extraordinary music in an intimate venue steeped in history. It has been in continuous operation longer than any other folk club in the USA. First opened in 1960 in Saratoga Springs NY, the Caffè’s early years were entwined with the social movements of that era. Emerging artists such as Bob Dylan, The Freedom Singers, Arlo Guthrie, Emmylou Harris and Don McLean took their turn on the stage, alongside esteemed veterans such as Clarence Ashley, Mississippi John Hurt, Skip James and Pete Seeger. The venue has been called “An American Treasure” by the Library of Congress, and has received recognition from the GRAMMY Foundation for its contribution to American music.
