“Hymns We Know by Heart,” an old-time front porch style sing-along of familiar and beloved hymns and Spirituals, will be held on Sunday, June 21, at 3:30 p.m., on the Franklin Town Square Gazebo, Main Street at Iotla in Franklin.
Attendees will sing together well known but seldom sung hymns from bygone days, including “In the Garden,” “Jesus Loves Me,” “Shall We Gather at the River,” and “The Old Rugged Cross,” plus Spirituals like “Amen,” “Do Lord,” “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,” and “This Little Light of Mine.” Singing will be led by Cindy Miles, with accompaniment by keyboardist Lionel Caynon. Requests will be encouraged.
Bring a lawn chair, family, friends, and a hymnal if you wish. In case of rain, the concert will move into the First Presbyterian Chapel, corner of Church Street and Harrison Avenue. No admission charged; donations are welcome. This event is produced by the Arts Council of Macon County, with funding from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
