Windborne Project: Song on the Times
We have received the email below from Jeremy, a member of Windborne. As he says, those of us at their workshop last summer heard about this new initiative of theirs:
I hope you are doing well and making lots of great music! I just wanted to let you know about a project that Windborne has been working on that has been very near and dear to our hearts this past year (and past few months in particular). You heard a few of the songs and wordsheets this summer! Windborne's new project, Song On The Times, is an illustrated songbook and album that brings together music from working class movements for peoples' rights in the US and UK over 400 years, and sings them for today's struggles. We would love your support on the project as well as help spreading the word! When I think of folks who are musical and care about these issues, i definitely think of you, so I wanted to make sure you were in the loop!
In addition to Windborne's richly harmonized arrangements, there is a book of beautifully illustrated lyrics and music, alongside history and personal reflections on the songs from activists, singers, and scholars.
Anyway, i thought you and other folks in the group would enjoy it, and we'd love to have your support!
