Sacred Harp singing gets press – Spoleto Festival

Article in ArtsBeat – New York Times about Sacred Harp Singing at this years Spoleto Festival in Charleston, SC

Couple weeks back we went to an NC Shape Note meeting to hear Tim Erickson talk about his love for Sacred Harp singing and history.  The group meets on the 2nd and 4th Sundays in Durham and Cary.

If you are interested in finding out more the documentary “Awake, My Soul” is a fantastic introduction to the tradition, the music, and the people of shape note singing.
