Alan Chartock & The Berkshire Ramblers – Folksong Fundraiser
November 22, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Alan Chartock & The Berkshire Ramblers remind us how great it feels to sing time-tested songs together. Championing folk songs of the “old style,” the band will have the crowd singing along on familiar favorites by Leadbelly, Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger and The Weavers.
The band is fronted by WAMC Northeast Public Radio President and CEO Alan Chartock, a banjo player and a longtime devotee of folk music. His wife and bandmate, Roselle Chartock, who went to Skidmore, was a waitress at Caffè Lena and knew Lena Spencer well.
The Berkshire Ramblers have a love for Caffè Lena and the traditions it upholds and have once again offered to raise money for Caffè Lena’s programming, including a diverse concert schedule; free and low-cost musical jams, poetry and storytelling open mics; free concerts in community settings via Caffè Lena On-the-Road; professional development for local musicians; children’s concerts, record parties, and daily events that inspire creativity, fellowship and civic engagement.
