Second Monday shape note singing

Aug 29, 2014

Belfast — Energetic four-part unaccompanied community singing, dating from Colonial New England, also known as Sacred Harp singing, will take place Monday, Sept. 8, from 7 to 9 p.m. at First Church, between Court and Church streets (entrance on Spring Street).

The singing is open to all, at no cost, and newcomers are most welcome. Books are available for loan and purchase. This month’s gathering offers a warm-up for two days of singing, Sept. 19 and 20, at the Common Ground Country Fair.

Those who wish to gather for supper before the monthly singing are invited to meet at the Belfast Co-op, 123 High St. For more information, call Sumner Roberts, 338-1265; or Bobbie Goodell, 594-5743.
