Daily Special + Friends (Barbershop Quartets and participatory singing)
Join us for an afternoon of singing, with opportunities to join in yourself! We'll be featuring a variety of quartets and music and sharing our love of harmony with the PorchFest community.
Barbershop music is a uniquely American close harmony musical art form whose roots lie in African-American improvisation and European harmony traditions. It is a distinct style of unaccompanied (a cappella) vocal music characterized by consonant four-part chords for every melody note in a primarily homorhythmic (the same word sounds at the same time) texture.
