Stone Church Arts presents Windborne singing ‘Song on the Times’

BELLOWS FALLS — Windborne will present “Song on the Times,” their project of songs from working-class movements for peoples' rights from the past 400 years, in Bellows Falls at the stone church on the hill, Immanuel Episcopal, 20 Church St., at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 1.

The powerfully harmonizing four-member singing group was catapulted to new heights when a clip of them singing in protest outside Trump Tower in New York went viral, and their Indiegogo campaign for the project wildly surpassed its goal, with donations from 2,600 people in all 50 states and 22 countries.

Aside from this new project, Windborne has collected and studied polyphonic vocal music for over 15 years from traditional singing masters from cultures around the world. They easily shift among radically different genres, as comfortable with an improvised Corsican couplet song as with 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.
