Date: Sunday 16th February 2020
Windborne Singers from the USA
Windborne specialise in close harmony singing, shifting effortlessly between dramatically different styles of music. Their musical knowledge spans many continents and cultures as well as being deeply rooted in American folk singing traditions.
The 4 singers who make up Windborne : Lynn Mahoney Rowan, Will Thomas Rowan, Lauren Breunig and Jeremy Carter-Gordon share a vibrant energy onstage – their connection to each other and to the music clearly evident. They educate as they entertain, telling stories about the music and explaining the characteristics and stylistic elements of the traditions in which they sing.
On Sunday evening Windborne will perform a full-length concert in the fine acoustic of Marazion Community Centre.
Praise for Windborne’s performances and recordings:
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. Brian O'Donovan, National Public Radio
Some of the finest singers of protest and folk music that I have ever heard...One of the Best Albums of 2017! SingOut! Radio Magazine
Spectacularly good, utterly brilliant...a hugely impressive album! -Blues and Roots Radio

Kana Kernow (Singing Cornwall)
Hosted by Pip Wright
Kana Kernow was set up in 2013 by local singing leaders Pip Wright and Claire Ingleheart to provide opportunities for people to come together to sing for enjoyment, to learn new songs and to experience new styles of singing.
We run workshops in the heart of our communities in village halls, leading some workshops ourselves as well as drawing on the rich wealth of local singing leaders.
A couple of times a year we invite excellent singing leaders from further afield to Cornwall so we can all experience exciting, good quality, diverse singing workshops locally.
