Midday Interview: Cleve Callison on Sacred Harp Singing

"Africa" is a popular Sacred Harp tune

  On Friday I visited with Cleve Callison, WHQR’s Station Manager, about his passion for Sacred Harp music.  Sacred Harp is a type of shape-note singing that became popular in the mid-1800’s as a way for people who don’t read music to learn hymns and sing together.  A local group of Sacred Harp singers is forming; their next meeting will be at Cameron Art Museum on Sunday, July 28th from 2 to 4pm.
