New: Wrightsville Beach Magazine here on the North Carolina coast has just published a very well-written article about our Wilmington Sacred Harp group. Writer Simon Martinez has done an excellent job of capturing the spirit of the music and of our group in Wilmington, now a little over two years old. As a bonus, the magazine’s website is handsomely done, very much on a par with the sophistication of its print edition.
If you’re near the southeast NC coast in the future (and really, who wouldn’t want to be?), please join us on the last Sunday afternoon of each month at Wilmington’s Cameron Art Museum.
New-ish: Wilmington Sacred Harp now has its own Facebook group.
The address is:
- Cameron Art Museum
3201 S 17th Street
Wilmington, NC 28412
