Old Harp

BY JEREMY SHIPP
@ VOL 15 ON MAY 07, 2015

Knoxville’s old harp singers taught Jeremy Shipp to sing, using an oblong shape-note tune book published in Knoxville in 1867. Old harp is the tradition and community of singing from this book. If you show up, you’re a singer. Each singer takes a turn choosing a song and leading it from the center of the hollow square, and the unaccompanied four-part harmony is a raw, visceral, ancient sound. There is no audience, only singers... and a potluck dinner on the grounds.
