NOON30: McIntosh County Shouters

A compelling fusion of dance, call-and-response singing, and percussion (consisting of hand-clapping and beating a stick on the floor), the ring shout tradition of the Georgia and South Carolina coast has African origins but also contains strong elements of Christian belief. NEA National Heritage Fellows the McIntosh County Shouters are the foremost practitioners of this tradition and have become SMF favorites. This is their first SMF appearance since the 2015 season, but they have performed regularly for local schoolchildren grades K-2 as part of SMF’s Musical Explorers curriculum.

Don’t miss a FREE Q&A with the Mcintosh County Shouters on 4/1 at 5 PM!
