This weekend will see the 151st anniversary of the East Texas Sacred Harp Convention.
The Convention will meet (d.v) on Saturday August 12th and Sunday August 13th. We will start at 9:30 a.m. Saturday. The main events of Saturday and Sunday are singing, more singing and eating bar-b-q. On Saturday night we will have a social for visiting singers at the First Baptist Church. This will include a viewing of Awake My Soul. "'Awake, My Soul: The Story of the Sacred Harp' is the first feature documentary about Sacred Harp singing. Matt and Erica Hinton spent 7 years documenting this yet largely unknown art form."
