FSGW is working with the American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress to bring you this concert. The fee structure and COVID protocols are those of the Library of Congress.

Windborne is Lynn Mahoney Rowan, Will Thomas Rowan, Lauren Breunig, and Jeremy Carter-Gordon. The four 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. All four have traveled extensively in the US and throughout the world with Village Harmony, Northern Harmony and the Renewal Chorus, leading workshops and giving concerts. Over the past decade, Windborne has sought out masters of traditional singing styles in the US and around the world to study a variety of vocal music. Through these collaborations, they have developed the vocal agility and authentic sound for which they are known.

In addition to their musical artistry, the members of Windborne are adherents to folk music’s longtime alliance with social activism, labor, civil rights, and other movements that champion the oppressed, the poor, and the disenfranchised. On their latest project, "Of Hard Times & Harmony," they explore 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.  For their concert at the American Folklife Center, they will be performing nature related songs from a variety of traditions in celebration of Earth Day.
