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.
