UNITY — Internationally acclaimed folk band Windborne will perform at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 23, at Unity College Center for the Performing Arts.

The band uses a polyphonic style of singing, in which band members sing two notes at once, said Unity College Center for the Performing Arts Events Manager Wendi Richards said in a news release from the college.

“They are not a highly recognized name, but they have quite the pedigree and a sound to match. Their sound is very Unity: young, energetic, amazingly harmonic. We are lucky to have them here,” Richards said in the release.

The internationally acclaimed folk band has been called 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,” the band — 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 are 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.

Tickets cost $15 and can be purchased at the venue or online at secure2.unity.edu/payments/tickets/179.
