Sacred Harp

A form of traditional American singing dating from the early 1800s, Sacred Harp is ‘singing for singing’s sake!’ It is do-it-yourself participatory singing – no auditions, no try-outs, no audience. It is about participation, not performance.

Sacred Harp music been referred to as the Punk Rock or Heavy Metal music of America in the 19th century. It was close to dying out in the 1960s but has had a resurgence in recent years and is now sung across North America and Europe.
