Meridian Herald Southern Folk Advent at Old Church, Oxford, December 2

Leah Calvert and Friends will provide bluegrass-gospel music and preacher-scholar Brooks Holifield will speak at Meridian Herald’s 25th annual Southern Folk Advent® Service. The Meridian Chorale will sing and Steven Darsey will direct the music. The event will be held Saturday, December 2, 4:00 p.m. at Old Church on the Oxford College campus in Oxford, Georgia. Admission is free. This years’ service features the majestic singing of Atlanta tenor, Timothy Miller, famed for his Atlanta Braves home game appearances.  He sings the dramatic folk hymn “The Morning Trumpet” in Steven Darsey’s arrangement, backed by the Meridian Chorale. Also soloing will be Georgia opera star Brent Davis. The event will include a brief memorial to Georgia bluegrass legend, Sonny Houston, who led and played with the Folk Advent band for 24 years before passing away this past summer.

 

Since its inaugural service in 1993, Southern Folk Advent® has become an honored holiday tradition.  A form of Lessons and Carols, this service is based on folk hymns from the historic Sacred Harp tunebook, compiled in Georgia in 1844. Built in 1841, Old Church springs from the same era and region as The Sacred Harp itself.  Old Church is near Oxford College of Emory University in Oxford, Georgia, at the corner of Fletcher and Wesley Streets.
