Caffe Lena PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Caffe Lena free pdf In 1960, burgeoning actress and defiant dreamer Lena Spencer opened a small coffeehouse in the quaint upstate New York town of Saratoga Springs. It was a time in America when a coffeehouse could be something more - a focal point for a different sort of people, radical new ideas and notably, emerging artists. Caffe Lena's humble stage regularly welcomed musicians such as a young Bob Dylan in 1961 and a pre-'American Pie' Don McLean in 1965. Quickly, Caffe Lena took its place among the nation's foremost incubators of an American folk movement that inspired a generation of music.

About Jocelyn Arem

Jocelyn Arem is a folklorist, producer, consultant, and musician, who played her first professional gig on Caffe Lena's legendary stage. Inspired by the Caffe's history, she began to document the legacy and cultural impact of the venue and its founder. The publishing of this remarkable collection of stories and images is the culmination of Arem's decade-long work as Director of the Caffe Lena History Project in association with the Library of Congress and in collaboration with Caffe Lena Inc. Her writing appears in the "American Folklife Center News," "The Association for Recorded Sound Collections Journal," and "Boston Beats" magazine, and her research has been featured on NPR, NBC, CBS, ABC, in "American Airlines Magazine," and at GRAMMY week in Los Angeles. In partnership with Magic Shop Studio and the Joe Alper Photo Collection LLC, she is producing a boxed set of original Caffe Lena recordings and an exhibition of Joe Alper's Caffe Lena photographs to accompany the release of the book. Joe Alper (1925-1968) is responsible for widely recognized and historic jazz, folk, and blues performance photography, including candid shots of the folk revival and the civil rights era. Joe and his wife, Jackie Gibson Alper, played a key role in supporting Lena Spencer and her Caffe, often housing musicians at their nearby home in Schenectady, New York. Jackie's musical/political career included singing with the original Almanac Singers, becoming the fifth member of the original Weavers folksinging group, befriending Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie, and hosting WRPI's "Mostly Folk" radio show from 1971-1993. Joseph Deuel has been an avid photographer since grade school. He discovered Caffe Lena during high school in the early 1970s and has been taking photos there ever since. Many of these photos have found their way to nationally distributed CD covers and magazines. Mr. Deuel has been a frequent sound engineer at Caffe Lena since the late 1980s.
