Song on the Times: Windborne Live!
Saturday, November 18; 7-9pm
Windborne is Lynn Mahoney Rowan, Will Thomas Rowan, Lauren Breunig, and Jeremy Carter-Gordon. These four Windborne singers grew up immersed in the traditional song and dance communities of New England and discovered a love of world folk music in their teens.
Over the past decade, Windborne has sought out masters of traditional singing styles in the US and around the world to study a variety of vocal music. Through these collaborations, they have developed the vocal agility and authentic sound for which they are known. Their dynamic concert programs include songs from Corsica, the Republic of Georgia, Bulgaria, Quebec, and Basque country, as well as traditional and original American folk music.
This evening they will include songs from their newest CD – Song on the Times – a compilation of music that has sustained people in struggles over the last 400 years. They believe deeply in the power of music to change hearts, and they will inspire you with their rich harmonies and deep commitment to this music.
In 2014, Windborne was one of 10 groups selected by American Music Abroad and the US Department of State to tour as cultural ambassadors through music. They traveled to Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Angola, touring with internationally known artists, performing at sold-out national theaters, and collaborating with traditional musicians in each country. They also taught music and dance workshops to schoolchildren, English-language learners, dance schools, choirs, and music conservatories.
Registration is $15 when received by November 3; $18 thereafter.
Would you like to learn to sing and share these songs yourself? Windborne will present a workshop, Saturday, November 18 at 9-noon. For more information visit our page: Songs of the People Workshop.
