I don't know if you're still monitoring this blog, but if so, I just heard about Sacred Harp, did some research, & found a list of all of the signings happening in 2018. I saw that y'all are having one in Ringgold on Sept. 1 & would like some information on it. Anything you can tell me would be great! I'm quite intrigued! Thanks!
