Sing with us Saturday, July 18th in Berlin, NH AND the Maine All-Day is coming up the weekend following!

Did you all know North Country Sing is on SoundCloud?  So far we only have two recordings uploaded (and they're a little Carly- & Chris-heavy), but hey, it's a start!

Take a listen and let the sound inspire you to join us this Saturday,  July 18th.  We need you!

We meet from 6-9pm on the 3rd Saturday of each month to sing from the Sacred Harp.  Tune books are available for loan or for sale.  We take a short break about halfway through for potluck snacks (bring something to share if you are able).

We sing from The Sacred Harp, 1991 Edition, and occasionally from other sources, without instruments or audience.  The music is participatory, sung for each other and ourselves.

Beginners are welcome!

Don't forget to join our Facebook group-- North Country Shape Note Singing.

Join us at the new WREN Makers Space - 117 Main Street - Berlin, New HampshireSaturday, July 18, 20156-9pm

Don't forget the Maine All-Day Singing (which is actually a whole weekend full of singing opportunities) in and around lovely Union, ME!

The "Maine Event" (ha.  see what I did there?) is Saturday, July 26th from the Sacred Harp, but you'll also have the opportunity to sing from another great collection of songs, The American Vocalist, on Sunday... including a chance to sing around the grave of DH Mansfield, the compiler of said collection.  

(Oh, and there's also Cooper Book singing, Christian Harmony singing, and singing from The Shenandoah Harmony, too...  Check out the link above for all the details!)
