BHS Member Center: How to Renew Your AHSOW Subscription

The Ancient Harmonious Society of Woodshedders (AHSOW) was formed in 1977 with the purpose to preserve the skill of woodshedding as an art form within The Barbershop Harmony Society. 

Woodshedding is three individual voices (tenor, bari, and bass) creating barbershop harmonies by ear to a Lead's melody, without any written arrangement. The melody is introduced by the lead so all can become familiar with it, but should not have a well-known arrangement This art hearkens back to over a century ago, to the origins of barbershop quartet singing, where four men would gather (frequently at the local barber shop) and harmonize to the familiar tunes of the day.
