      1. Joyce Cauthen invites you to a Brown Bag lunch at the Birmingham
      Public Library downtown this Wednesday, May 7 at noon to hear a lecture
      entitled "The Little Country Church and its Music." In it she talks about
      four archaic forms of sacred music that have survived the modernization of
      church music, those being African-American spirituals and the chant-like
      "Dr. Watts" hymns, Primitive Baptists hymn a capella hymn singing and Sacred
      Harp or fa-sol-la singing. She'll play recorded examples of each. If
      you've ever wanted to know more about these musical forms, Wednesday's your
      chance.

      2. The Second Annual Old Time Fiddlers' Convention in Fyffe, Alabama, will
      take place on Saturday, June 21, at the Hyde City park. The competition
      begins at 6:00. Concessions will be available but Bring your lawn chairs.
      This is a nice old-timey event, based on a strong Sand Mountain tradition,
      that some of us attended last year and enjoyed a lot. For more information
      call Dennis George, 256-996-6916.
