Northern Harmony is a group of musicians based in Vermont. This group
is dynamic, joyous, and unfailingly musical, and features an unusual
and lively repertoire. They sing from memory with a powerful,
remarkably in tune, straight-toned sound. To watch Northern Harmony
is almost as much fun as listening to them. Their informality and the
energy of their close-knit interaction communicates directly to the
audience. These folks are serious and passionate and are searching
for music and musical experience which is in some way transcendent.
Northern Harmony has always featured American shape-note and early New
England singing school music and now, increasingly, new shape-note
style compositions by its members. At the same time they find equal
joy in many other kinds of music: Balkan village music, early music
(primarily renaissance and early baroque sacred works), South African
songs, gospel and spirituals. In past years they have performed on
Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion and also at the Smithsonian
Institution in Washington, DC. Each year their spring tour takes them
somewhere new where without fail they are received as one of the most
exciting singing groups of our time.
