All-day singings & conventions

Golden Gate: 212 Sharon

Gretchen leading no. 212 Sharon from The Sacred Harp (1991 Denson edition), at the eighth annual Golden Gate All-day Singing, 22 April 2012, held at the Potrero Hills Neighborhood House in San Francisco, Calif. and sponsored by Bay Area Sacred Harp.

Gretchen is another long-time singer. If I remember correctly, she was introduced to shape note music during the 1960s, with the Christian Harmony in North Carolina. I’d guess she began singing shape note music before anyone else at this year’s Golden Gate.

N.B.: This is the last video I made at this year’s Golden Gate.
