Concerts @ CAM series: The Music of Peter, Paul and Mary Featuring Mark Teachey

The program will include images and fascinating facts about some of the songs he performs including: "Leaving on a Jet Plane", “Blowin In The Wind", “Puff The Magic Dragon", and more. Bring family and friends to enjoy an evening with Mark Teachey as he pays tribute to artists who may have been part of the soundtrack of your life.

Wilmington Sacred Harp Singers

Sunday, 6/24/2018
1:30 pm: Instruction for beginners
2:00 - 4 pm: Group Singing, all
Songbooks provided, beginners welcome!

Wilmington Sacred Harp Singers ( presents a traditional Sacred Harp Singing and invite you to join in the music and raise your voice in song! This dynamic form of a cappella social singing dates back to Colonial America, using a modern reprint of the 1844 songbook "The Sacred Harp". Sacred Harp and related shape-note styles are the oldest continuous singing traditions in the United States. Surviving as a living tradition in parts of the South, notably Georgia and Alabama, Sacred Harp music has been discovered by new generations of singers who have spread the heritage across North America and to Australia and Europe.

The music is loud, vigorous and intense. It is meant to be sung, not just observed. No previous experience is necessary. Learn more about Sacred Harp singing at Free and open to the public, Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall.
