 SARATOGA SPRINGS —Caffè Lena presents its third annual Sing In the Streets Festival – from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 19. 

The event features six stages of folk, rock, blues, country and kids’ music in the venue’s downtown neighborhood in an annual celebration of the anniversary of America’s longest-running folk music venue. Caffè Lena opened on May 21, 1960, and has been in continuous operation in the same location ever since. 

 “More and more people are looking to Lena’s as a place to gather, make music, learn new skills and enjoy a sense of community,” said Caffè Lena Executive Director Sarah Craig. “We’re serving young families, teens, retirees and everyone in between. Sing In the Streets is one of the ways this work gets funded, thanks to our business sponsors and those who donate on the day of the festival.” 

Caffè Lena presents nearly 300 headline concerts annually, offers free weekly shows for preschool children and alcohol-free open mics for all ages. In addition, the venue teaches folk music skills to youth and adults and produces popular jam sessions for retirees.

Sing in the Streets will take place rain or shine, with events moving indoors if bad weather strikes. Rain locations, all in the same downtown neighborhood, will be posted on the venue’s website, www.caffelena.org.

Scheduled performers: Brule County Bad Boys; Erin Harkes; Girl Love; Mark & Jill; Owl & Crow; Professor Louie & The Crowmatix; Rachael Sumner & Traveling Light; Reese Fulmer & The Carriage House Band, and The Wildmans.
