Windborne


Saturday, January 13th, 2018 at Ricki's
292 Main Street Ashfield MA
T:413-628-4568


Lynn Mahoney, Will Thomas Rowan, Lauren Breunig, and Jeremy Carter-Gordon specialize in close harmony. A vibrant energy and strong connection is evident in their engaging performance. Windborne has sought out masters of traditional singing styles worldwide to study a large variety of vocal music. Through these collaborations, they have developed the unique and distinctly authentic sound for which they are known. They draw upon years of experience singing individually and collectively to create dynamic programs, regaling audiences with their vocal agility, power, and carefully crafted arrangements. Their current repertoire includes music from Corsica, the Republic of Georgia, Bulgaria, Turkmenistan, Quebec, Kyrgyzstan, Angola, and Basque country, but they remain deeply rooted in American folk singing traditions.

In addition to touring together, all four have performed extensively in the US and throughout the world with Village Harmony, Northern Harmony and the Renewal Chorus. In 2010 Windborne won first place in the Young Tradition Vermont Showcase Competition.

Windbourne is a group of vocal chameleons, juxtaposing their clever settings of traditional and original American music with traditional vocal music from Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean. They switch effortlessly between drastically different styles of singing within the same concert, all the while delighting the audience with their vocal energy and carefully crafted arrangements.

In addition to performing concerts worldwide, Windborne has been teaching workshops in schools, community centers, singing camps, and universities for the past decade. Experienced teachers and song-leaders, they delight groups young and old, large and small, with enthusiastic, clear, and nuanced instruction and get groups singing in harmony in no time!

In 2014, Windborne was selected by American Music Abroad and the US Department of State to represent the USA as musical ambassadors on a cultural diplomacy tour of Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Angola. They toured the stage with internationally known artists, sold out national theaters, and collaborated with traditional musicians to perform around the country. They also taught music and dance workshops to schoolchildren, language learners, dance schools, choirs, music conservatories, and more.

This will be a singing spectacular, a fun gathering of old friends and new and as usual a wonderful time for all. I'm looking forward to seeing you here in Ashfield. In Peace, Ricki

Folk musicologist Mary DesRosiers acclaims Windborne for "the purity of their voices, strength of their material, and attention to detail in their arrangements."

"The singers of the Windborne, have a deep understanding, both musically and culturally, of the traditions from which they draw much of their repertoire. Their singing is a feast of a capella harmony."
