ANNOUNCEMENT! The Indiegogo campaign for Song on the Times: A Songbook and Album for Social Action is now live! SONG ON THE TIMES is an illustrated songbook and album that brings together music from working class movements for peoples’ rights in the US and UK over 400 years, and sings them for today’s struggles. Enjoy Windborne’s richly harmonized arrangements with a book of beautifully illustrated lyrics and music, alongside history and personal reflections on the songs from activists, singers, and scholars. After this campaign, we will sell Song on the Times and donate 50% of profits to social causes. Click here to support now! Windborne is proud and grateful to say we have been awarded a Passim Iguana Music Fund Grant for this project! Thanks Iguana!
On January 14th, 2017 Windborne braved the snow and sleet to sing Song of the Lower Classes, off our upcoming album in front of Trump Tower.
Internationally acclaimed folk band Windborne is a group of vocal chameleons who specialize in close harmony singing, shifting effortlessly between drastically different styles of traditional music within the same concert. Their musical knowledge spans many continents and cultures, but they remain deeply rooted in American folk singing traditions. Praised for “the purity of their voices, strength of their material, and attention to detail in their arrangements,” 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.
