Chris and I were in Baltimore for a long weekend and were smart enough to plan our trip so we would arrive in time for the regular Thursday night singing.  I founded this singing about ten years ago (which is an awesome reminder of how old I am, and also how dedicated these singers are).  It was such a joy to be back in our city and singing with our favorite people on our home turf.  Meeting some of the new singers that are keeping this thing going was a real joy, too!

Kevin made this little video of us singing Millbrook from the Shenandoah Harmony.  This is a tune Neely Bruce composed in around 1989 (so, fairly recently by our standards).  The tune is also published in the Northern Harmony and I think a couple other collections.

Maybe we'll make some copies so we can sing this song on Saturday!

Join us for the Third Saturday North Country Shape Note Singing

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Or maybe it's just the craziest.  Either way, everybody is busy with holiday happenings and shopping and eating and preparations for whatever you favored December traditions include.  Amidst all the hubbub of the holidays, don't forget to

Come SING!

We'll be singing on the Third Saturday of December (and every month, in fact) and you better join us!

In the meantime, enjoy this rendition of Sherburne (page 186 in the Sacred Harp) from the Holly Springs Convention in June 1982.  I love 1982 because it's the year I was born. 
Look at all those fabulous styles of eye wear!

Sherburne is one of the Christmas-y tunes in the book. 
Enjoy! Tis the season!
