Joy and I are honored to join some wonderful performer in paying tribute to Folksinger Bill Staines who was a wise and gentle songwriter from New Hampshire who performed on the Caffe Lena stage more than any other performer in our 62 year history. Twice a year from 1968 to 2021, Bill would make his way back to Saratoga to sing his beloved songs that have become staples in our lives. Bill passed away on Sunday, December 5th, 2021 leaving music lovers to mourn across the world. For this special tribute concert, regional musicians will gather at Caffe Lena to sing Bill's songs together. Tonight's show will be emceed by Joseph Bruchac and feature Joy Bennett and Chris Koldewy, Kate Blain, Vivian Nesbitt and John Dillon, Taylor Whiteside, and Reggie Harris.
