Upstate is an acoustic septet drawing inspiration from every corner (and decade) of America’s musical heritage. Based in New York’s Hudson Valley region, the band has spent years cultivating its sound, and continues to grow by the tune. The instrumentation includes Harry D’Agostino on upright bass, Ryan Chappell on mandolin, Dean Mahoney on cajón, and Christian Joao on flute and alto/baritone saxophone. The dynamic rhythm section supports a three part vocal harmony powerhouse of Mary Kenney, Melanie Glenn and Allison Olender.
The Caffe Lena Stay Home Sessions are performances recorded in the listening room, broadcast live for the community to enjoy during this uncertain time of physical isolation. Please prioritize your health and well-being, and use these nightly live streams as a respite from the stress of our current situation.
