Braintree Folk Presents
Internationally acclaimed vocal band Windborne will headline Braintree Folk on Saturday, March 14, 2020.  They are touring in support of their project: Song on the Times: A Songbook and Album for Social Struggle.  This  illustrated songbook and album collects music from working class movements for peoples rights in the US and UK over the past 400 years, and sings them for the struggles of today. The album features Windbornes richly harmonized arrangements, accompanied by a book of beautifully illustrated lyrics and music alongside guest essays providing historical context from activists, singers, and scholars such as Eliza Carthy, Reggie Harris, John Sayles, Tony Barrand, and more.

Windborne has collected and studied polyphonic vocal music for over 15 years from traditional singing masters from cultures around the world, Windborne is able to shift from radically different genres like no band you have ever heard, as comfortable with an improvised Corsican couplet song, as an English ballad. 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.

The best musical discovery of the year...Stunningly powerful vocal harmony in the tradition of the Watersons, The Voice Squad, and Coope, Boyes, and Simpson, Windborne sets a new bar for folk harmony singing today
-Brian O'Donovan, National Public Radio
