Shadowfax was a new age/electronic musical group, best known for their albums ''Shadowfax'' and ''Folksongs for a Nuclear Village''. In 1988 they won the Grammy for Best New Age Performance for ''Folksongs for a Nuclear Village''. In 1992 they were nominated for the Grammy for ''Esperanto''. The group formed in 1972 and disbanded after 1995 when Lyricon player and leader Chuck Greenberg died of a heart attack. Having lost their signature sound, Shadowfax's members went on to other projects. The group takes its name from Gandalf's horse Shadowfax in J. R. R. Tolkien's ''The Lord of the Rings''.
