For Capital District folk music fans, this band hardly needs an introduction. They've been a mainstay at contra dances, parties, weddings and festivals ever since they first formed in Albany in 1970. Featuring Bill Spence on hammered dulcimer, Toby Stover on piano, and George Wilson on fiddle, they were among the first folk bands to make records featuring hammered dulcimer and, as such, ignited a revival of interest in the instrument.
Throughout their first couple decades they traveled far and wide, appearing on the mainstage at Philadelphia Folk Festival, Mariposa, and of course Old Songs and Fox Hollow festivals. The jaw-dropper here is that--44 years into their illustrious career--this will be Fennig's FIRST performance at Caffe Lena! Holy Oversight, Batman! Please help us welcome these stalwarts of the folk world to the Caffe Lena stage, and enjoy a night of happy, traditional American music.
