Local musicians who enjoy singing in the shape-note tradition will lead this session. First, one group member will offer a historical background about this musical method of singing. After the explanation, the group will sing for us. Everyone will be invited to join in, but will not be required to do so. The singers will be circled in the middle of the room in order to hear each other. All others will sit around the outside of the singing circle to enjoy the large, warm sound of their sacred music.
