THE YARD THEATER PRESENTS Down at the Yard - Monday Night Music Series
Join us this Monday night at 8 pm for another stellar concert.
THIS WEEK WE'RE PROUD TO WELCOME
MEREDITH AXELROD AND THE YARD SACRED HARP SINGERS
Delightfully engaging and unassumingly comic, Meredith Axelrod envisions the limitless potential of early twentieth century music, whether it be Ragtime, Music Hall, Pop Standard, Boogie Woogie, Tin Pan Alley, String band, Jazz, Country, Blues or even Jug Band music, and embodies the spirit that brought the music into existence in the first place.
Sacred Harp singing is a form of sacred polyphonic choral music that originated in New England and represents a tradition of American music that developed in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
Frank Fairfield and Emily Ross started the Yard Sacred Harp Singers in early April after a Down At The Yard show. The group has grown from a handful of friends to a dedicated group of singers who forgo sleep each Monday night to share in this tradition.
