Regular Local Singings
Revised January 7, 2019
This list contains entries describing shape-note singings that
occur four or more times a year and that draw singers primarily
from the immediate locale where they take place. No conventions or
annual singings are listed.
This list was originally compiled and maintained by Bob Hall and
Ella Wilcox of Falls Church, Virginia. It is now maintained as
needed by Annie Grieshop, and once a year by the editors of the Sacred
Harp Minutes and Directory.
If we have left out a singing, or if any information is
incorrect, please notify Annie Grieshop by e-mail:
Please include the current listing when sending an update.
If the update will be valid in 2018, it is also important to send
corrections, updated directions, or other information regarding
singing dates and locations to firstname.lastname@example.org
for inclusion in future minute books and online schedules.
Listings of singings using other books listed below are welcome,
though they may not appear in the printed version.
Tunebooks used by the singings in this list are designated by
the following codes:
- CH (Christian Harmony, Deason-Parris Revision)
- HS (Harmonia Sacra)
- MH (Missouri Harmony, 2005 Edition)
- NHC (New Harp of Columbia)
- NH (Northern Harmony)
- NHH (Northampton Harmony)
- CSH (B. F. White Sacred Harp, Cooper Revision)
- 1991 (Sacred Harp, 1991 Revision)
Always call before attempting to go to a singing! Times and
locations often change! We have made every effort to confirm
the information in this list, but we can not guarantee that it
is still accurate.
