Marching under the unfurling burlap banner of the West Coast folk and renaissance music movement, The Merry Wives of Windsor are delighted to present our fourth CD, Happy Endings. Founded in 2002, MWOW has amassed an impressive body of traditional and original folk music.
From their rollicking, hard-hitting, bawdy numbers to their soulful and melancholy ballads, these ladies have captivated audiences wherever they perform. Happy Endings shows a depth and maturity to their music which promises to please whether you are a fan of the pure traditional tunes or their rollicking original pieces.
These ten vocalists sing in three- and four-part harmonies, accompanied by guitar, Irish bouzouki, mandolin, bass, accordian, recorder, fiddle and bodhran. They have developed a remarkably modern sound, yet still remain true to their inspirational roots in folk music.
