The Buttonwood Tree Spans the Globe, Musically and Poetically

The slate is chock full of goodies of musical and poetical talents this weekend so come on down to "Middletown's Living Room" and have a good ol' time! Bring your friends or make new ones here!

Tonight, Windborne travels from Vermont to grace our stage after an award-winning tour of Turkmenistan, Angola and Kyrgyzstan!

   Internationally acclaimed folk band Windborne is a group of vocal chameleons who specialize in close harmony singing, shifting effortlessly between drastically different styles of traditional music within the same concert. Their musical knowledge spans many continents and cultures, but they remain deeply rooted in American folk singing traditions. Praised for “the purity of their voices, strength of their material, and attention to detail in their arrangements,” 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.

Reservations may be made here:
