Sunday, June 23, 2:30 pm at Macky Auditorium
The McIntosh County Shouters are Master Artists of the Ring Shout, a nearly extinct art form carried to the United States by enslaved Africans. It is a historical narrative expressed in the oral tradition of sound, song, and movement, a unique fusion of dance, song, and percussion. Seeing them perform at Macky is a once in a lifetime occurrence as members are aging, dwindling in numbers, and their Gullahah Geechee way of life is disappearing. Condos and high rise buildings are replacing the farm and coastal areas of their once quiet island off the coast of Georgia. Join us in making this unique cultural event a memorable experience. This event is FREE with ticket and welcoming to children and families.
Tickets are available here.
