Greetings all, I wanted to let the community know of a very exciting event that is coming round the way.
St. Paul's Presbyterian (163 Ponce DeLeon, at Piedmont) will be hosting a concert as well as a Sacred Harp singing workshop taught by Tim Eriksen on Wednesday May 26th . Please come and bring your friends. Tim is a fearless and deeply compelling musician that comes to Atlanta very rarely. He is also a longtime Sacred Harp singer and is well known for having arranged for the Sacred Harp singing in the film "Cold Mountain" as well as teaching Jude Law, Nicole Kidman and a bunch of Romanian extras how to look like
they were singing in that film.
Singing workshop begins at 6:30 (all are welcome!)
Concert begins at 8:30
Concert: Suggested donation $8.
Here, Tim Eriksen is performing at IronHorse music hall. For more photos:www.flickr.com/photos/wmshc_kiwitayro/
