Caffe Lena Open Mic host
I moved to upstate New York in 1989 and in 1990 I was told about the open mic at Caffe Lena and I have been going almost every Thursday since. I play a lot of the singer songwriter tunes like Paul Simon, Cat Stevens, Jimmy Buffet, Taj Mahal, John Prine, Beatles, and lots of folky stuff. I was asked to become a host and have been hosting ever since. It is nice to see the new faces coming to the caffe to sing their songs and become proficient at performance, there is always something to learn, and always something to teach.
