Windborne (Special Event)

  • 19 Jan 2018
  • 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
  • Allyworld, Takoma Park, MD
NEW LOCATION! Windborne is an internationally acclaimed Vermont quartet (Lynn Mahoney Rowan, Will Thomas Rowan, Lauren Breunig, and Jeremy Carter-Gordon), touring in support of their fourth CD, Song on the Times, presenting 200 years of protest music: songs of laborers, pacifists, and other resistance movements using the power of communal song to organize. In strong, beautiful, polished yet sincere harmony arrangements, Windborne tells the stories of the Diggers, the Chartists, and the abolitionists - generations of dissidents who paved the way for the social progress and struggles of the 21st century.

If you can't make it to Windborne's live radio performance in the afternoon--No worries! At this evening concert, they'll perform songs from Song on the Times and their rich catalog of material from Appalachia, the Midwest, New England, Old England, Corsica, the Republic of Georgia, Bulgaria, Quebec, and the Basque country. (At their last standing-room-only concert for FSGW, they sang in 13 languages - 14 if you count formal French and the Quebecois dialect as two.) At Allyworld. $15 donation suggested.
