Low Light Lake Lure Snow Day Singing

Lake Lure, North Carolina

December 9, 2018

The Lake Lure singing convened on in the aftermath of a snow storm following the St. John’s Rutherfordton, NC singing the previous day. The assembled were lodging in the hills around Lake Lure, and were without power and with limited outside contact. After a day of informal singing from the Christian Harmony and Sacred Harp, we decided to hold a minuted signing; however, without powered illumination we found ourselves with only the light of a gas powered fireplace.

Sam Kleinman called the class to order with 59 at approximately 6pm on behalf of Chair Jane Cannon and Vice-Chair Thom Fahrbach. Keillor Mose, arranging committee, discussed the opening prayer and its role in the practice of all day singings with Thom Fahrbach before turning the selection of the leaders to the class at their own recognizance.
