36th Annual National Sacred Harp Convention
Place: First Christian Church of Birmingham, Birmingham AL
One of the finest sacred harp conventions in the States - was such a honor to be there and record great singings for my project.
This beautiful music culture of the South is still strongly alive... I was so surprised there were a lot of young singers leading the meeting. I talked with many of them, one was relating with the documentary of Othar Turner, other one was working at Sacred Harp Publishing Company... Everybody had strong backgrounds of American traditional music and that was so touching as their wonderful singings.
We could record tons of tunes.
Thanks everybody, especially Mark S. Davis for your help to make this happen.
