The Folklore Society of Greater Washington

Furthering the understanding, investigation, appreciation, and performance of the traditional folk music and folklore of the American people.

Potomac River Shape-Note Singing Convention

Annually since 1990, this gathering attracts singers from across the country for two days of spirited, 4-part, participatory, unaccompanied singing from the classic shape-note tunebook The Sacred Harp and, since 2013, The Shenandoah Harmony. Tunebooks will be available for loan or purchase. Each day there will be a midday dinner break; local singers are asked to bring a good supply of victuals to share. There is no entrance fee, though a collection will be taken to help cover costs. Experienced singers, newcomers, and listeners are all welcome.
