The third (and final) installment of Caffe Lena’s Folk DJ Showcase series was curated by Wanda Fischer, the host and producer of WAMC-FM’s long-running “The Hudson River Sampler,” and to no one’s surprise, she presented some mighty fine musical talent at the venerable Saratoga coffeehouse.
Juno Award-winner, multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter-storyteller Craig Werth had the honor of closing the show, but openers the Boxcar Lilies could just as easily handled the headlining slot with the devastating three-part harmonies from Jenny Goodspeed, Stephanie Marshall and Katie Clarke.
Fischer and the Lilies will be teaming up once again for the Phil Ochs Song Night at WAMC-FM’s The Linda in Albany, which will also feature Fischer’s co-host Sonny Ochs and performances by Magpie, Kim & Reggie Harris, Bob Warren & Joy McKenzie and Cathy Winter. The concert takes place at 8pm on Saturday, May 24; tickets are $18.
