Folk Music & Beyond: Windborne Live!

Sep 20, 2019

Join us for some wonderful four-part harmony singing by Windborne this Saturday at 3 pm on KALW’s Folk Music & Beyond!  Windborne is a young a cappella ensemble based on the east coast.  They specialize in close harmony singing, shifting effortlessly between drastically different styles of traditional music within the same concert.  Their songs cover folk, old-time/American roots, gospel, and Balkan.

Join us this Saturday at 3 pm (PDT) on Folk Music & Beyond for a live performance by talented young British musician Dan Walsh, making a rare Bay Area appearance.  Dan will enthrall you with his mastery of the clawhammer banjo. Dan does it all-- Celtic and old-time, Balkan, Scandinavian, Egyptian, and Indian ragas!
