Choral
A Sacred Harp Passiontide Service
The spare and haunting sound of shape-note singing is well-suited for this Lenten meditation service on the Passion. Started in New England singing schools as a way to teach music theory, shape-note singing eventually wove into the heart of Appalachia and Southern states where the tradition of singing “fa-so-la” melodies in three or four parts still endures. Sacred Harp is the name of the most popular publication in the shape-note style, and as the preface explains, King David may have played on the harp, but the instrument we were all given at birth – the human voice – is the sacred harp. The service also includes retellings of the Passion narrative in a folk story version as told by Clarence Jordan in his Cotton Patch Gospels. St. Paul’s Choir will sing original versions of tunes from Sacred Harp and other collections, as well as anthem arrangements by American composers.

Acoustic, Solo Performance
Ben Bedford in Concert
A "Moveable" Flying Cat Concert Carriage House Concerts at the Propylaeum Ben Bedford delivers intriguing sketches of America, its individuals, their victories and their struggles. Poignant, but never sentimental, Bedford’s portrait-like songs capture the vitality of his characters and draw the listener deep into the narratives. With his fourth album, The Pilot and the Flying Machine, Ben Bedford takes the listener on a philosophical, poetic, and powerful sonic flight. With his songwriting as erudite as ever and his guitar playing further honed and refined, Bedford enters decidedly new territory in terms of themes, sound, and arrangement with this album. While his tried and true singer songwriter influences, such as Townes Van Zandt and Patty Griffin are here, this album owes as much in inspiration to the piano playing of Vladimir Horowitz and Thelonious Monk, the theatrical songwriting of Kate Bush, and the open sounding jazz and classical recordings of the late 1950s. Friday, February 10, 2017, 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $20 in advance/$25 at the door Carriage House Concerts at the Propylaeum Telephone: Brown Paper Tickets at 800-838-3006 e-mail: support@brownpapertickets.com 1410 N.
