Inspired by early wordless Shaker songs, Grammy-award winning composer Brad Wells created Silo Songs, a sound art installation that offers visitors an immersive musical experience inside one of the historic silos. The score is sung by Sam Amidon, Rhiannon Giddens, Eamon O'Leary, and Caroline Shaw, who capture the ecstatic feel of Shaker worship and suggest what Mother Ann's singing evoked in her followers, in which "the spacious apartment would ring with beautiful songs which no man could learn."
