Work Song Sing-a-Long
Work Song Sing-a-Long with Max Godfrey and Friends December 15 at the Sheepscot General Store in Whitefield. Join us for an evening of song. Learn to sing worksongs, practice worksongs you know, warm up your lungs for the fields. Worksongs are an appropriate technology for small scale farmers, makes the work go faster, the heart lighter, the mood merry. Farmers all over the country have learned a few songs that help them get through planting, weeding, harvesting, washing -- and Max is a beloved song leader and performer of traditional songs. Max is a Georgia farm apprentice and folk singer. He learned many worksongs from old blues singers and from field recordings of prisons and chain gangs throughout the south and has been teaching them at workshops in addition to teaching them at the farms he’s worked on. Max provides historical context for these songs. He’s taught worksongs with Sylvester Manor at the Young Farmer’s Conference and NOFA NY. He’s on tour around the northeast to share these songs.
