Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, New York will host this special tribute to four brilliant songwriters. All of them left us too soon, yet each left behind an incredible number of great songs. If you're not familiar with all of these wonderful writers, here's a little background on each: Steve Goodman’s “City of New Orleans” was a big hit for Arlo Guthrie in 1972. Although Goodman never achieved much commercial success during his life, he was awarded two Grammies posthumously. Dave Carter was known for mystical, spiritual songs such as “When I Go,” but was equally at home with train and “road” songs. Kate Wolf wrote over two hundred songs in just fifteen years, including “Give Yourself to Love” and “Across the Great Divide.” Stan Rogers, one of Canada’s best-loved songwriters, created strikingly vivid portraits of working people, particularly those who labored at sea. He wrote such gems as “Barrett’s Privateers” and “The Mary Ellen Carter.” Performers at this tribute are multi-instrumentalist and regional favorite Susan Trump, Falcon Ridge Festival regular Terry Kitchen, Stuart Markus from the up-and-coming trio Gathering Time, and Alien Folklife's Joan Kosby.
