4th Thursday Singing & Tamworth Traditional Arts Fest

We're not always great at keeping things updated over here.  Typically we sing every 2nd and 4th Thursday from 6-9pm at either Whitney Community Center or the Jackson Old Library, both in Jackson, NH.  If you are coming from out of town, or are ever unsure about our plans for the evening, drop Carly and Chris and email at singers@northcountrysing.com and we'll let you know what we're up to!

This week we have TWO opportunities to sing together!  Stay tuned to the weather though, because Thursday's snowstorm could change our plans.

Regular 4th Thursday Sacred Harp Singing!
Thursday, February 27: 6-9 pm
Whitney Community Center

Black Mountain Road
Jackson, NH
Right next to the Jackson Grammar School. 

We sing from the 1991 Sacred Harp and The Shenandoah Harmony.  Tune books are available for loan or for sale.   All you need to bring is you, maybe a friend, and a potluck snack to share if you can.

Sacred Harp is a uniquely American tradition that brings communities together to sing four-part hymns and anthems. It is a proudly inclusive and democratic part of our shared cultural heritage.  Check out fasola.org for general information and for singings around the world.

Tamworth Traditional Arts Fest!
Saturday, February 29: 9am-2pm

Tamworth Town House
The Sacred Harp singing portion of the day is from 9-11 upstairs.
There will also be a song circle, contra dancing, and of course, the Tamworth Farmers Market downstairs.  The Fest was begun in Tamworth's 250th year to celebrate the town's singing and dancing traditions, and people enjoyed it so much that we have kept doing it pretty much exactly the same way.  Admission is by donation.  More info here.

This event is a benefit for the Arts Council of Tamworth.
