Event Details

Join us for a special after hours concert featuring the music of Windborne.

About the Show:

Music and song have always been a important part of movements for peoples rights. From the Diggers in 16th century England advocating the "leveling" of the social classes, to voting rights in the 1840s in the UK, through abolition, women's rights, union songs and environmentalism though today's struggles, Windborne uses song to educate about struggles of movements past, and discuss how they affect us today. This is a companion presentation to our book Song on the Times: A Songbook and Album For Social Struggle, and is thought provoking as well as heart-moving in its message and music. Best for teens and adults.

About the Band:

Windborne is Lynn Mahoney Rowan, Will Thomas Rowan, Lauren Breunig, and Jeremy Carter-Gordon. All four have traveled extensively in the US and throughout the world with Village Harmony, Northern Harmony and the Renewal Chorus, leading workshops and giving concerts. Specializing in close harmony singing, the quartet has a vibrant energy and a strong connection, which is evident in their engaging performance. They educate as they perform, telling stories about the music and explaining the characteristics and stylistic elements of the traditions in which they sing.  Mary DesRosiers, folk musicologist for the Monadnock Folklore Society, acclaims Windborne for “the purity of their voices, strength of their material, and attention to detail in their arrangements.”
