Potluck Singers will sing music of diverse world folk traditions

The Potluck Singers, a local group comprised of singers from Tamworth and many neighboring towns, will present a late fall concert of music from world folk traditions. The 20-member all-ages a cappella group, led by Joanna Wiley, will perform an evening of unique and inspiring songs, both rousing and peaceful, from South Africa, Bulgaria, England, India and Nigeria, as well as American traditional folk and contemporary shape-note numbers. In the Potluck Singers' usual style, audience participation will be invited, with some rounds and simple tunes taught. There will be two performances. The first will be on Saturday, November 5 at 7:00 pm at the Jackson Public Library; the second will be on Tuesday, November 8 at 7:00 pm at the Center Conway United Methodist Church. Both locations are easy to find in the centers of Jackson Village and Center Conway Village.

Refreshments will be served following the performance both nights. Both concerts are free, and all ages are invited. Contributions to the library and the church are welcome.
