7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Brattleboro Music Center
72 Blanche Moyse Way
After touring internationally and attracting an enthusiastic following on social media, Windborne performs at the Brattleboro Music Center Saturday, September 23.
With deep local roots and a 20-year background studying polyphonic music around the world, Lauren Breunig, Jeremy Carter-Gordon, Lynn Rowan, and Will Rowan share a vibrant energy onstage with a blending of voices that can only come from decades of friendship alongside dedicated practice. The ensemble shifts between different styles of music, drawing their audience along on a journey that spans continents and centuries, illuminating and expanding on the profound power and variation of the human voice. The singers educate as they entertain, sharing stories about their songs and explaining the context and characteristics of the styles in which they sing.
The 7 p.m. concert is expected to sell out, so you are encouraged to get your tickets as soon as possible. Tickets are $20 general admission, and $25 at the door. For tickets or more information, contact the BMC at 802-257-4523, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the BMC website at bmcvt.org.
BBC Traveling Folk describes Windborne as “subverting expectations and redefining the genre… just absolutely phenomenal!” Audiences and critics lavish praise upon the singers not only for their technical mastery, but for the passion, engagement, and connection with each other and the audience that imbues each performance with a rare power.
But there’s another, crucial dimension to Windborne that guides and roots their artistry. They are adherents to folk music’s longtime alliance with social activism, labor and civil rights, and other movements that champion the oppressed, the poor, and the disenfranchised. Their latest project, Of Hard Times & Harmony, explores themes of social consciousness, singing in four languages and showcasing the depth of emotion their voices can evoke, as well as moments of true hilarity and wit.
