Where: Fitzwilliam Town Library, Fitzwilliam, NH
When: December 4th, 2pm
Folk Duo Lynn and Will Rowan present a concert of uplifting songs for the winter holidays. This concert draws from and builds on their recording Sing the Sun’s Return: Wassails and Carols for Yuletide, a CD alternative to mainstream holiday music. Lynn and Will have been teaching and performing together for over a decade. Having traveled all over Europe learning traditional polyphonic music from master singers, a deep love and understanding of harmony infuses everything they do. They teach regularly for Village Harmony and Revels North, and have performed around the world as musical ambassadors for the US with their band Windborne. Lynn and Will are passionate about community music with roots in the ancient past. This comes out not only in their extensive knowledge of traditional music, but also in their original music. Their shows range from Lithuanian hymns to the sun accompanied on bagpipes to mournful tragic ballads to rollicking pub-style songs about the Norse Gods. Whether listening to their breathtaking harmonies, or singing along to their crafty arrangements, Lynn and Will’s sheer joy of singing is sure to capture your heart.
