It is with great sadness that I have to announce that Hugh McGraw passed away on Sunday evening at the age of 86. Hugh was the chairman of the music committee for The Sacred Harp, 1991 Revision. He was directly responsible for the expansion of Sacred Harp singing outside of the South.
Hugh's service is planned for Thursday afternoon, June 1, at Holly Springs Primitive Baptist Church in Bremen, Georgia. I will be driving down on Thursday
morning and returning that evening. David Carlton has already raised
the possibility of taking a carload (or maybe more) of singers down to
Bremen. If you are interested in going, let me know as soon as you can
so we can figure out how many drivers we need.
