Sacred Harp Singing Convention: Shapenote Singers

                         Shapenote singers

All are welcome to join the traditional singing school on Friday, 9/23 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., and also for the convention, on Saturday, 9/24 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Shapenote singers from across the country will gather for the 27th Annual Minnesota Sacred Harp Convention.  Local singers have hosted this event since 1990 and it will draw visitors from over a dozen states.

Shapenote singing has been done as a living musical tradition in Southern states since the early parts of the 19th century. Although there are a few exceptions, most of the music is religious or spiritual in subject. In the late 60’s and early 70’s, Sacred Harp singing was taken up in several Northern-State urban locations.  Many of the singers gathering in the Twin Cities have learned this music from singers who were born into the Southern tradition.  A few of those Southern singers will be attending. Please join us!
