Shape note singing

Cold Mountain

Same song sung in Ireland.

Cade's cove

Is this cultural appropriation?


I like the Irish versions - the women are easy on my old eyes.

I have read (probably in the comments) that a congregation shape note singing full bore could be heard a half mile away up and down the hollers. These are my people. I wish I could find singing like this around here. 

Happy Easter to each and every one of you, even that schmendrick ricpic wherever he is lurking. May his troubles pass over him an may his lintels not be lentils.
