Windborne from the US in Bath

14 Jan 2023

10.30am—5pm

St Luke’s Church

We are thrilled to be hosting Windborne again in Bath following their hugely successful workshop and concert in 2020.

“The most exciting vocal group in a generation,” Windborne’s captivating show draws on the singers’ deep roots in traditions of vocal harmony, while the absolute uniqueness of their artistic approach brings old songs into the present. Known for the innovation of their arrangements, their harmonies are bold and anything but predictable.

Windborne specialize in close harmony singing, shifting effortlessly between dramatically different styles of traditional music. Their musical knowledge spans many continents and cultures but they remain deeply rooted in American folk singing traditions.

They will teach songs from their American roots, songs of protest and freedom from their album Song on the Times and folk songs from other cultures collected on their travels. The workshop is open to everyone and all the songs and harmonies will be taught by ear by Jeremy, Lynn, Will and Lauren.

To round off the day in style, we will become the audience and Windborne will perform for us. Concert-only tickets also available.
