Winterbirds offers a powerful take on Progressive Folk. Deeply versed in traditional Appalachian Folk, Bluegrass and Newgrass, Classical Music, and Contemporary Chamber Music, these young performers cloak timeless melodies in unusual instrumental colors and thrilling textures. At once familiar and strange, their debut album Shaker Songs weaves the poetry of the American Shakers into a compelling exploration of the tensions between humility, self-expression, and love.
Winterbirds is touring in support of an album of old Shaker hymns that the group has set to updated arrangements. Winterbirds will be playing the following evening at the Shaker Village in Pleasant Hill as follows:
March 28th, 2 pm: Workshop at South Union Centre House
March 28th, 6 pm: Concert at South Union Hotel
