We're thrilled to welcome folk group The Young Novelists as they share a free pop-up set in our store as part of the Caffe Lena On The Road series!
Caffe Lena On The Road is a series of mini-residencies where touring artists that visit Saratoga Springs to play a show at Caffe Lena take several days and engage directly with the community through a variety of free performances, including small concerts, workshops, and jam sessions. These are designed to make the world-class music that is enjoyed in the Caffe Lena listening room accessible to people within their own spaces, with an emphasis on schools, elderly care centers, and community service organizations.
The Young Novelists create contemporary folk songs that marry their effortless harmonies with poetic lyrics and exquisitely crafted hooks. They have landed a Canadian Folk Music Award for New/Emerging Artist, a nomination for Vocal Group of the Year, and multiple songwriting awards. They have toured across Canada, the United States, and in Europe, often with their young son in tow. Their signature show features confessional storytelling about their songs and travels, singalongs, and the unique sound of bowed glockenspiel.
