WHAT IS SHAPE NOTE SINGING?

 "If you take American folk melodies, blend them with the harmony of medieval vocal music, add a driving rhythm and turn up the volume, you have an approximation of what shape note singing sounds like." - Hal Kunkel, Pennsylvania Sacred Harp Singer

 

We are members of the Savannah Traditional and Early Music Network

A network of Savannah groups and individuals devoted to the study, performance and enjoyment of traditional and early music.
