Youthful, exuberant music from Prince Edward Island that ROCKED the place on their first trip last February. And just added, Windborne four harmony singers grew up immersed in the traditional song and dance communities of New England and discovered a love of world folk music in their teens. Truly amazing group. See below for a sample.
Introducing new groups to the Boston audiences is one of the joys of this series. Ten Strings and A Goatskin, are from Prince Edward Island. They take the trad influences of Scotlish/Irish/French/Bluegrass and make it into their own unique mix. Youthful, adventurous, a little wild and yet with the welcoming spirit of the gorgeous and storied Island they grew up on!
