Annual Thanksiging Supper & Harp Singing

Epworth Old Harp Singers
Event Location: 
Laurel Theater
Wednesday, November 21, 2018 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

The Jubilee Community Arts and the Epworth Old Harp Singers will host the annual Thanksgiving get together on Wednesday, November 21, at 6:30 p.m. at the Laurel Theater, 1538 Laurel Ave., Knoxville, TN. A potluck supper will be followed by a community singing from the New Harp of Columbia. Shape note singing has a long history in East Tennessee and the Epworth Old Harp Singers are actively carrying on that tradition. The New Harp of Columbia was first published in 1863 in Knoxville, based on the 1848 Harp of Columbia, also published in East Tennessee; a comprehensive edition restoring all omitted songs was published in 2001 thanks to the tireless efforts of singer Larry Olszewski. This year's singing will serve as the twelfth annual memorial singing in honor of Larry. The event is free, open to the public, and song books will be provided. Bring a dish & sing for your supper.
