Next Event at the Cafe:|
Salsa Thursday with lessons and Latin dancing
Thursday, June 2 at 7:30pm Cost: $10.00 with lesson, $5.00 for just dancing
The Rosendale Cafe continues their series of Latin dance events on Thursday nights, each starting with an all-levels lesson from 7:30pm to 8:30pm, and dancing until 10:30pm. Instructor David Salvatierra and Julia Farr will lead dance forms that may include Salsa, Mambo, Merengue, Cha Cha, Bachata, and now the fun style of Rueda de Casino.
Rueda de Casino is a style where several couples dance choreographically around a circle, with dance moves spoken by a "caller". This style was developed in Cuba in the 1950s, and is the greatest way to learn salsa as community. Everyone can join this class!

Saturday, June 4 at 8:00pm Cost: $10.00
Born out of the tight knit and rising Folk music scene of Binghamton NY, the band Milkweed has been drawing crowds and critical acclaim through their first year of full time touring. Their unique shows stand apart from the norm, with the raised platform and attention to lyrics, and their depth of three part harmonies. While both whimsical and melancholy, Milkweeds music bridges the gaps between genres, combining storytelling with poetry, flat picking with Piedmont blues, and gospel with some hints of rock and roll. Through great dynamics the band can produce fragile spellbinding moments, and then create a full sound far surpassing the expected limits of a trio. With the imminent release of their first full length album, Dream of an American Family, recorded by the great Don Sternaker (Railroad Earth, From Good Homes, Peter Gabriel, Blues Traveler) and mastered by the legendary Gene Paul (John Prine, Nora Jones, Aretha Franklin, Roberta Flack) Milkweed is on the list of 'must sees' and 'bands to watch for'. Comprised of Peter Lister, Jacqueline Colombo, and Joseph Alston, Milkweed can be seen and heard at the many great listening rooms and theaters in the Northeast and beyond. Bring your open ears and open hearts. You won't leave disappointed.
