Opened by Lena Spencer in 1960, this tiny room has played host to influential artists across diverse genres of music; traditional folk, blues, singer-songwriters, jazz, and bluegrass. Luckily, many performances were caught on tape through the years, offering the listener a thrilling seat inside this hallowed venue. This boxed set, the result of years of investigative research, contains 47 tracks, all released for the very first time, alongside previously unpublished images. Now the oldest continuously operational folk music coffeehouse in the US, Caffe Lena is stil open for business. Come on in."
