Hey Folks! 

We just finished a great run of Christmas shows at the Cutler Majestic in Boston, performing Song of the Lower Classes for over 14,000 people. Brian O'Donovan of WGBH called Windborne “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!”

Sing Out! Radio Magazine agrees, saying "Some of the finest singers of protest and folk music that I have ever heard." and naming Song on the Times one of the "Best Albums of 2017"

We will be touring all over the US and UK this year, so keep in touch and check out our Events calendar:  http://www.windbornesingers.com/events/

In other news, if you want to get some more copies of Song on the Times for friends or family, you can do so at https://sott.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders
It says preorder, but worry not! The books are all sitting in our garage and ready to go! 

Hope to see you soon in concert!
In song and solidarity,
Windborne

BOOKS HAVE ARRIVED!!!!!

 


Printed by a local American press on partially recycled paper, the art and illustrations are beautiful and crisp, the paper feels gorgeous, and it is all hand-stitched together by a local independent bindery with striking red thread. The CD art is a colorful contrast and the music from the album itself is already getting rave reviews from radio programs! We can't wait to send it out! MAKE SURE YOU FILL OUT YOUR SURVEY!!!

Thanks to you all for helping us bring this idea to life in the best possible way, without having to cut any corners! We are so proud of this book and album and know you will love it! Come celebrate at Club Passim this Thursday and be the first to get your hands on a copy!!
