 The McIntosh County Shouters have never been known by any other name.



While the McIntosh County Shouters have been performing in public since 1980, they have been practicing the ring shout since the 18th century. This age-old tradition has been passed down from generation to generation in this family since their ancestors arrived in bondage over 300 years ago.


The McIntosh County Shouters have received many awards over the years in recognition of their continued interest in keeping the ring shout alive.
