Potomac River Shape-Note Singing Convention

Annually since 1990, this gathering attracts singers from across the country for two days of intense, 4-part, participatory, unaccompanied singing from the classic shape-note tunebook The Sacred Harp and, since 2013, The Shenandoah Harmony. Books will be available for loan or purchase. There is no entrance fee, though a collection will be taken to help cover costs. Experienced singers, newcomers, and listeners are all welcome.
