From spirituals to shape-note singing, Oakland Cemetery’s musical roots are deep and far-reaching — and the tradition continues to this day. From Atlanta’s earliest days into the modern era, the city has long been a magnet for the musically-inclined. This tour spotlights some noted Atlanta musicians buried here and examines how some of the cemetery’s architecture tunes into musical themes.
