Ember Swift

On Thanksgiving Eve, several dozen people came to Saratoga Springs legendary Caffe Lena to see and hear Canadian singer-songwriter Ember Swift perform her multi-lingual show – some French, some Chinese, but mostly English – and it was a gust of fresh air blowing into the venerated folk coffeehouse.

Few in the audience were bi-lingual, let alone tri-lingual. But Swift had the foresight to explain some of the foreign language songs and engage the audience in helping with a chorus of word sounds, presumably Chinese, written during her part-time residency in Beijing. Hey, it sounded great.
