Fairlee Community Arts presents internationally acclaimed vocal band Windborne at the Fairlee Town Hall Auditorium on Tuesday, October 16 at 6:30pm. The ensemble is touring in support of their new project: Song on the Times: A Songbook and Album for Social Struggle and will be in residence at the Lyme School working with students there on Tuesday and Wednesday (Oct. 16-17).
Song on the Times is an illustrated songbook and album that 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. The concert features Windborne’s richly harmonized arrangements of album highlights. Their tour and album have been getting rave reviews: SingOut! Magazine named it “One of the Best Albums of 2017” and praises Windborne as "Some of the finest singers of protest and folk music that I have ever heard.”No Depression writes: "Completely enthralled with them from the first notes...their harmonies are gorgeous," and Blues and Roots Radio calls Song on the Times “Spectacularly good...utterly brilliant, a hugely impressive album.”
The outpouring of requests for performances led Windborne 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 in Fairlee is sure to inspire and delight!
Admission charged at the door: $10 for adults and $5 for students/children. For more info: www.fairleearts.org
