Shape Note Sing with the Amidons

June 27, 2021 at 5:45 am

Peter and Mary Alice Amidon are versatile and widely respected performing and teaching artists who for the past twenty years have dedicated themselves to traditional song (especially harmony singing), dance, and storytelling. The Amidons are equally at home performing a concert of stories and songs  for adults or children; calling a community dance for all ages; or leading harmony-singing workshops with adults.

Stefan Amidon, a gifted singer and singing leader, leads shape note singing at the Old Songs Festival. Although he is best known as a percussionist and singer with the Sweetback Sisters, the Starry Mountain Singers, and The Devil Makes Three, he is also becoming a hot mandolin player, and a deeply meditative old time fiddler.
