Greg Howard, John Bayer, and Sean Fenton of the Dayton Sacred Harp Singers come to WYSO to demonstrate the classic branch of folk music known as Sacred Harp. Based in a rich Gospel and Hymn context, Sacred Harp singing is a tradition of singing religious music arranged for the rural Americans of 18th and 19th centuries.
The Dayton Sacred Harp Singers work to recapture this classic folk sound by creating a welcoming community that will accept any who wish to learn more about this incredible musical culture. Songs performed include “What Wondrous Love” and “Strepfield”.
It was all music and laughs on Dear Green Place this week. Dear Green Place was so pleased to have Bob Ford and the Ragamuffins live in the WYSO studios. The tunes kept coming and between Bob Ford, Beth Ford and Jan Finkle there were plenty of laughs.
