Windborne is a quartet of young vocalists specializing in close harmony singing from many lands, performing a
cappella and accompanied by traditional instruments such as banjo, jaw harp and washboard. While rooted in American
traditions, they shift effortlessly between vastly different vocal cultures, including some from countries in which
they have performed: the Republic of Georgia, Corsica, Bulgaria, Spain, Québec and beyond. Their debut album "Song
on the Times," featuring Anglo-American music of the working classes, was released in 2016 to international acclaim.
Praised for "the purity of their voices, strength of their material, and attention to detail in their arrangements," Lynn
Mahoney Rowan, Will Thomas Rowan, Lauren Bruenig and Jeremy Carter-Gordon share a vibrant energy onstage. Their
connection to each other and to the music is evident as they educate while entertaining, telling stories and explaining the
stylistic elements of the traditions in which they sing. Travel the world through uplifting song!
