Michael Eck

Recent Capital Region Thomas Edison Music Hall of Fame inductee Michael Eck—along with select special guests— celebrates his 40th Anniversary in live music with a solo show at Caffe Lena on Sunday at 7PM that both looks back across his career as a songwriter and introduces new music with an eye toward the future.

Self-billed as a “roots scholar,” Eck, who plays in Caffe Lena favorites Lost Radio Rounders, imbues his tunes, covered by the likes of Mark Tolstrup, Kevin Maul and Steve Candlen, with a deep knowledge of and respect for American roots.
