“Picking up the torch of protest folk song for the next generation...old songs for new struggles.”  Windborne has collected and studied polyphonic vocal music for over 15 years from traditional singing masters from cultures around the world. The quartet 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. Says Brian O'Donovan, from WGBH's A Celtic Sojourn, "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.”
