show details 1:16 PM (2 hours ago)
Hello Friends, Family, & people generally interested in folk music,
Members from the bay area shape-note singing community will be giving a demonstration of the Sacred Harp tonight! Monday, on KUSF 90.3, round 10-11pm tonight! Pacific time.
For those out of range of the San Francisco frequencies, there's an internet feed here: http://www.live365.com/stations/kusf
I was able to open that feed in iTunes.
I won't be doing a whole lot, just calling on my inner-Paul Robeson to help out the bass section (I normally sing tenor, but for purposes of balance...), but it should be a good introduction to this strange style of traditional music, which I have sung early & often, all over the country. And we'll be using our spot to promote this Saturday's Golden Gate Sacred Harp Convention, open to all, which is 9am-3pm at the Potrero Hill Neighborhood House, 953 De Haro St. x Southern Heights, San Francisco, California, U.S.A.!
