Seattle Folklore Society presents: Windborne
$18 / $16 / $9
Specializing in close-harmony singing, this New England quartet has sought out living masters of traditional US singing styles and other styles around the world, to develop a deep connection to their songs and to the people they come from. The result is engaging performances filled with vibrant energy, beautiful, close harmonies, and maybe some banjo and percussion to round it all out.
Windborne is Lynn Mahoney Rowan, Will Thomas Rowan, Lauren Breunig, and Jeremy Carter-Gordon. The combined talents and experience of these four young musicians make for wonderful concerts, filled with entertaining stories about the music and explaining the characteristics and stylistic elements of the traditions in which they sing. Folk musicologist Mary DesRosiers acclaims Windborne for “the purity of their voices, strength of their material, and attention to detail in their arrangements.” Their repertoire includes music from all over the globe, including the Republic of Georgia, Bulgaria, Corsica, Basque Country, and Quebec, but they remain deeply rooted in American folk singing tradition.
Tickets: $18 ($16 students & seniors, $9 youth)
