Don’t miss this rare local appearance by Windborne! This internationally acclaimed vocal folk quartet was raised in the Brattleboro-area traditional music scene and are delighted to be performing so close to home! Brattleboro’s own folk legend Peter Amidon calls them, “A feast of a cappella harmony.”
Picking up the torch of protest folk song for the next generation, singing old songs for new struggles: Windborne’s current project, Song on the Times, is a collection of songs of working class movements for peoples’ rights from the past 400 years, sung for today. The group was catapulted to new heights when clip of them singing in protest outside Trump tower went viral, and their Indiegogo for the project raised 1,600% of its goal from 2,600 people in every State and 22 countries.
Aside from this new project, Windborne has collected and studied polyphonic vocal music for over 15 years from traditional singing masters from cultures around the world, Windborne is able to shift from radically different genres like no band you have ever heard, as comfortable with an improvised Corsican couplet song, as an English ballad. Lynn Mahoney Rowan, Will Thomas Rowan, Lauren Breunig, and Jeremy Carter-Gordon share a vibrant energy onstage – their connection to each other and to the music clearly evident. They educate as they entertain, telling stories about the music and explaining the characteristics and stylistic elements of the traditions in which they sing.
