Remember to bring your "cup" in to our next rehearsal (Thursday, September 13 at 7:15 a.m.)

It was great seeing all of you!

Run Children Run

Run Children Run

 Full of musical influences from diverse cultures, Run Children Run is based on a traditional field yell or holler, the songs that black slaves would call out across the cotton fields in order to relay messages of support and solidarity.

 The field holler employs a single, repeated musical verse which sounds like a kind of yell or cry. An answering shout or holler would then come from another field far away. Slaves often sang hollers as they worked in the vast tobacco and cotton fields of the South. Hollers were also a way of communicating, and sometimes contained coded information, such as the time and location for the next secret meeting where a ring shout might be performed.
