Have you ever heard of Sacred Harp Singing before? If so, how?

Yes. I first heard about it in May of 2006 in the vesitibule of the Old Town School of Folk Music. I was reading through all sorts of advertisements, when I found an advertisement for Sacred Harp Singing. I have been involved since then.

What interests you about Sacred Harp Singing, from what you know so far?

I enjoy the melodies and harmonies in Sacred Harp Singing. I also like the community-based approach to singing, where the goal is just to sing with others, rather than rehearsing towards a performance. And I'm deeply impressed by its long history.

What are good days and times for you to meet?

I first learned about Sacred Harp Singing in May of 2006. Since then, I've had many incredible musical and social experiences in the Sacred Harp community. I'd like to invite others to share in this great tradition.
