Portland Sacred Harp

OPB | March 27, 2008 8 p.m. | Updated: July 16, 2014 11:37 a.m.

Portland Sacred Harp isn’t a harp at all, it’s a singing group. Dating to the early 1800s, shape note singing is a uniquely American musical tradition that brings communities together through four-part harmonies, with songs that can be boisterous or reverent. Locally, Portland Sacred Harp preserves this cultural heritage through its regular “singings” and Sacred Harp conventions.

First Broadcast: 2008
Producer: Sue Arbuthnot
