I just can't say enough about the location of the shape-note singing that we attended this past weekend. Folklore Village is a wonderful place, with a wonderful staff. And, if you ever have a chance to visit or attend one of the many cultural events that are held there, I would highly recommend that you go!
We sang in Plum Grove Church, a building that was established in 1882. However, after years of wear, the church was restored and moved to Folklore Village in 1993. In 1995, the church was listed in the National Register and State Register of Historic Places. It reminded me of many Primitive Baptist church buildings in which I've attended meetings. Simple, but beautiful - with great acoustics. Perfect for Sacred Harp singing.
Here are a few pictures that have been taken of Folklore Village and its surrounding grounds for a fiddle association. Hopefully, we'll have some pictures from our trip posted soon. (Did I mention that it SNOWED?!?!?)
