The Windborne Players
The best musical discovery of the year...Stunningly powerful vocal harmony... Windborne sets a new bar for folk harmony singing today-Brian O'Donovan, WGBH-National Public Radio.
Internationally acclaimed vocal band Windborne will be making an appearance at The Orchard School and Community Center on Thursday, September 12th.
Windborne was catapulted to wider recognition after a video of them singing a protest song from the 1840s outside Trump Tower went viral, gaining over a million views between YouTube and Facebook. Windborne had set out to raise $5,000 for the project, but ended up raising over $80,000 from 2,600 people, from every state, and 22 countries around the world!
Picking up the torch of folk protest music... their work collects music from working class movements for peoples rights in the US and UK over the past 400 years, and sings them for the struggles of today.
While all four singers had other careers, ranging from trapeze artist to dance anthropologist, the outpouring of requests for performances led them to make spreading this music and message their full time work, and they are now touring across the US and UK, with performances in 20 states this year. Their performance at Orchard Hill in East Alstead, NH is sure to be a highlight that will amaze and delight audiences!
