Shapenote Singing

E-mail Print


7pm                                         Led by Rachel Stevens and members of the Northampton Shapenote Singing group,
aka Western Massachusetts Sacred Harp Community.

  • Friday, March 1
  • Friday, March 15
  • Friday, March 29

Participants are welcome to attend as they can. No previous experience needed.
Also known as Sacred Harp music, this unique four part harmony a cappella style was developed in New England in the 1600s and subsequently moved to the rural South where it took deep roots.
In the Pioneer Valley, Shapenote music is once again alive and well. While the text of the songs are religious in nature, modern day singers come from all backgrounds. We are please to be bringing this opportunity to the North Quabbin area. Please join us.
