      About Sacred Harp Singing:
      Join us to sing from the Sacred Harp, following a centuries-old
      traditions of 4-part, a cappella, shape note singing. Having it's roots
      historically in the American South, this music was spread to a musically
      illiterate population via singing schools and itinerant singing masters.
      Either because of its "illegitimate harmonies" or because of its
      "folktheology," shape note music has seldom found its way into church
      ervices. It is sung in homes and gatherings and conventions, but rarely
      "performed."

      Everyone who comes to this music eventually becomes part of it. Speaking
      of musical experience, none is necessary to join us! All parts will be
      strongly supported and you will be carried by the wave of music
      surrounding you. The curious are welcome to listen, but be warned that
      this music is contagious.
