Rockport Music presents: Sweet Honey in the Rock
February 16, 2013
Rooted in a deeply held commitment to create music out of the rich textures of African American legacy and traditions, Sweet Honey In The Rock possesses a stunning vocal prowess that captures the complex sounds of blues, spirituals, traditional gospel hymns, rap, reggae, African chants, Hip Hop, ancient lullabies, and jazz improvisation. For almost 40 years, they have toured the country as one of American’s most celebrated
a cappella vocal groups and have garnered critical acclaim, including a Grammy Award and several Grammy nominations. Sweet Honey’s collective voice, occasionally accompanied by hand percussion instruments, produces a sound filled with soulful harmonies and intricate rhythms.
“[Sweet Honey’s] songs lead us to the well of truth that nourishes the will and courage to stand strong.
She is the keeper of the flame.”
- Harry Belafonte
