Sacred Harp or Shape Note Singing is a four part harmony, a capella folk music that has been sung
continuously since Colonial times. It is the precursor for both White and Black Gospel and
for some of the harmonies heard in bluegrass and country.

The music is fun to sing, loud, full of open harmonies also known as power chords, and completly addictive.

No music experience required

No politics ~ No preaching ~ Just singing
