We are pleased to announce that Bridgett Hill Kennedy will be our singing school teacher for the Ninth Ireland Sacred Harp Convention, 1st March 2019.

BRIDGETT HILL KENNEDY, PhD, attended her first Sacred Harp singing in June of 2003. This life changing event came about when she was invited to accompany her sister-in-law to a singing for a commissioned painting (“All Day Singing and Dinner on the Grounds” by Bethanne Hill, 2003, commissioned by Max Berueffy). Since then, Bridgett has been honoured to serve as an instructor at both Adult and Youth sessions of Camp Fasola (2013-2017) and Camp Fasola, Europe (2014). As a social scientist, she enjoys teaching on the sociocultural aspects and benefits of Sacred Harp. Bridgett is an Assistant Professor and Director of the Online Psychology Degree Program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
