Annual singings are the best place to experience Sacred Harp. They might be big or small, old (over 150 years) or new. Most annual singings are all-day singings with dinner at noon. They usually start at 10:00 Eastern (9:30 for big singings) in Georgia or 9:00 Central in Alabama. They end around 2:30 or 3:00, after everyone who wants to lead a song has had a turn. Newcomers are always welcome.
The list of Georgia and eastern Alabama singings below is generated from Warren Steel's annual Sacred Harp directory and annual Christian Harmony directory. Sometimes singings change or are cancelled at the last minute. Detailed up-to-date confirmed information is given each month on our upcoming singings page.
