ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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 third CD, Tales from Windsor's Tavern. 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. Tales from Windsor's Tavern 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 eleven vocalists sing in three- and four-part harmonies, accompanied by guitar, Irish bouzouki, mandolin, accordian, recorder, fiddle and bodhran. They have developed a remarkably modern sound, yet still remain true to their inspirational roots in folk music.

Wonderfull Stuff!
This is one of the best folk-rock albums I've hears in a long time. Bringing back the magic of Fairport Convention and Steely Span. Beautifull melodies flavoured with elegant harmonies to make a fresh og cathy sound with a good rhytmic feel in the beat. An exelent blend of up-tempo and slow songs to make a fullfilling programe of fantastic songs. It makes you happy and make you wanna cry at the same time. A perfect experience!

Fantastic job!
Tales From Windor's Tavern is a rollicking good romp in the hay--yet other songs pluck at your very heart strings. The great blend of strong vocals, backed by solid instrumentation, deliver a professional and powerful wallop! The variety of tunes on this CD keeps you surprised and interested--even when you've listened over and over--and you will!

BLOWN AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was only introuduced to MWOW threw Marc Gunn's Ren Fest Podcast earlier this year and I am so thankful for it.

What can be said about 11 woman singing in 3 and 4 part harmony but you will be blown away. The music is also fun and beautiful. You will always have a smile on your face as you listen. Buy it now and get the rest of there cds while you are at it.

Another wonderful CD of beautiful music!
The new CD from the Merry Wives of Windsor is so amazing. . It is so hard to pick a favorite because each song is just fabulous! There is always a song on their CDs that moves me to tears and this CD the song is the Green Fields of France. Jenny's song has such a great sound. I can't say enough wonderful things about this CD. I'd have to go down the list of songs and say why each one is wonderful. Ladies, you did a wonderful job...again!
