For over two hundred years, communities across the country (and more recently around the world) have come together to sing shape note hymns: hauntingly beautiful songs of faith, devotion, love, and death. You are invited to join in this tradition -- no experience or singing ability necessary! We will gather at First Baptist Church, across from Appalshop, and begin with a singing school taught by Dr. Ron Pen of the University of Kentucky, followed by a regular singing, where anyone can lead a song, or just sing or listen.
