Wind Weavers plays original acoustic music and eclectic repertoire drawn from diverse sources, spanning traditional and contemporary sensibilities. The ensemble, led by accordionist Diana Strong, features fiddle (Audrey Knuth), guitar (Christopher Jacoby), double bass (Travis Hendrix) and percussion (Aziz Yehia). Wind Weavers brings together many threads of our collective musical backgrounds and interests, including Brazilian forró, Scandinavian, Balkan, New England trad, classical, and modern. We hope to convey to audiences the excitement we feel as musicians when discovering new grooves, weaving together harmonies and rhythms of diverse folk traditions, and finding an ever greater range of musical expression.
