In 1960, burgeoning actress and defiant dreamer Lena Spencer opened a small coffeehouse in the quaint upstate New York town of Saratoga Springs. It was a time in America when a coffeehouse could be something more - a focal point for a different sort of people, radical new ideas and notably, emerging artists. Caffe Lena's humble stage regularly welcomed musicians such as a young Bob Dylan in 1961 and a pre-American Pie' Don McLean in 1965. Quickly, Caffe Lena took its place among the nation's foremost incubators of an American folk movement that inspired a generation of music.'
