Braintree Folk Presents
WE REGRET THAT WE ARE CANCELLING THIS SHOW IN THE INTEREST OF HELPING TO PRESERVE COMMUNITY HEALTH AND WELL-BEING IN LIGHT OF COVID-19 - BUT......... Read on! Windborne is excited to present to you the first of our live-streamed quarantine-concerts! (You can also bookmark this link and put us on your calendar!) https://www.facebook.com/WindborneSingers/posts/10157167698715547 We've had the next month of work canceled, and so will be presenting our music in new ways! This concert is open to all, but if you have the means to help support us, there are three great options! 1. You can BECOME OUR PATRON! This is the best, and gives you behind the scenes access to our lives as musicians, and exclusive downloads of our newest songs Patreon.com/windborne 2. Check out ONLINE STORE, and buy a cd or two! Give one to a friend. They will love it! https://sott.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders 3. You can DONATE DIRECTLY to us by PayPal or Venmo: adancingfool@gmail.com Thanks for your support in keeping us singing during this time! Windborne has collected and studied polyphonic vocal music for over 15 years from traditional singing masters from cultures around the world, Windborne is able to shift from radically different genres like no band you have ever heard, as comfortable with an improvised Corsican couplet song, as an English ballad. 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. 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

CANCELLED Artists & Scholars Exhibition CANCELLED
IMPORTANT cancellation note:
**The MoAS office will be in touch with those who were planning to sponsor a challenge, enter a challenge, or display their art at the even, to discuss online presentation & display options, while event staff works to reschedule the event.  Questions?:  e-mail:  moas@eastkingdom.

On April 18th in the Barony of Carolingia, the MoAS Office is sponsoring what it hopes to be a regularly occurring, rotating, kingdom A&S event.

The event is based, not around competition, but is instead about creating spaces for positive feedback and interactions about A&S in the Kingdom.

The event will foster a supportive learning environment where artisans can guide each other as they learn, both about their field of interest, but also about how they can take their documentation, research, and individual A&S projects to the next level.

This event will feature:

* An A&S Display with an all-day EK Consultation Table available for one-on-one feedback.

* Classes- suitable for both beginning and advanced artisans- about research, presentation, display, documentation, and A&S culture.

* Laurel’s Challenge Communities based around 10 A&S topics, including:
- Embroidery
- Fiber Arts
- Costuming
- Martial A&S
- Performance Arts
- Science/Technology
- Culture/History
- Paper Arts
- Studio Arts
- Food/Brewing
