Windborne

 

“Some of the finest singers of protest and folk music that I have ever heard…One of the Best Albums of 2017!“ -SingOut! Radio Magazine

Windborne is a New England vocal quartet with stellar harmonies and arrangements from many folk vocal styles. Stunningly powerful vocal harmony floods the room as the four Windborne singers present Song on the Times, their project of working class movements for peoples’ rights from the past 400 years, sung for today struggles. 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.

“A gleefully winding path through American music…theirs is a dynamic approach born of genuine and deep-seated appreciation of the tradition in all its aspects” -Fatea Magazine

“Vocal virtuosity such as you rarely see on any folk stage” –Watford Folk
