The town of Hoboken, Georgia, is a Sacred Harp singing community. Youngsters are taught to sing from the Sacred Harp in the town's elementary school during history class. The singing families of Hoboken, in particular the Lee family, have maintained a unique singing style, characterized by relatively slow 4-beat tempos and a characteristic use of anticipatory notes in the lead.
Although there has been Sacred Harp singing in Hoboken for generations, the community restarted an all-day singing only in 1996. The class is extremely strong, and the dinner on the grounds a wonder.
