Byrd Cookie Company: A Savannah Favorite for 90 Years!

August 24th, 2014 by Teresa Jacobson

Byrd Cookie CompanyWhat’s In A Cookie? A Taste So Sweet…

What’s better than a delicious cookie? For many, cookies mean more than just a sweet treat. Cookies are a reminder of afternoons in the kitchen at Grandma’s house, making her famous chocolate crinkles.

Cookies and a cold glass of milk are a cure-all for a bad day, and they keep Santa fueled on his busy night. They are the coveted snack high on the counter in the cookie jar, just out of reach, but nothing a kitchen chair couldn’t fix.Relive these memories, and create many more at Byrd Cookie Company: A Savannah Favorite for 90 Years!

 90 Years, a Savannah Favorite

Byrd Cookie Company is celebrating 90 years in business, and they are doing it in a big way! Opening numerous locations in Savannah and Pooler, this beloved local cookie company is opening stores all along the east coast, from New York to Georgia.

In 1924, Ben T. Byrd, Sr. began his cookie business, baking cookies in his bakery and delivering them to neighborhood markets in his Model T Ford. It wasn’t long before the cookies and Mr. Byrd became famous to locals and visitors.

Check out Byrd Cookie Company at any of its three Savannah locations. Visit the factory store on Waters Avenue and smell the cookies baking the minute you step out of your car. Get a bite to eat at B. Tillman’s Restaurant & Bar located right next door.

Walking around downtown? Then don’t forget to stop by the City Market location to taste some samples, or BT Byrd’s @ Drayton Tower for a quick snake, hand-crafted soda, coffee, and of course, cookies!

Gullah Geechee Ring Shouters Perform on July 21, 2010

June 25th, 2010 by Teresa Jacobson

What?  What is a ring shouter?  Well, I certainly didn’t know before I read the newspaper article in the Savannah Morning News but as I write this blog I am listening to a recording of “Run Old Jeremiah” sung by Joe Washington Brown and Austin Coleman in Jennings, Louisiana, in 1934.   The words of the ”shout” are written just below the recording which helps make sense of the roles each Shouter plays.  The leader is the ”Songster” who begins the song, and next to him is the “basser” whose job it is to call back the lines of the song. Next to the leader is the “stick man” who beats a rhythm with a wooden stick or broom and the basser adds rhythm with hand clapping or foot tapping. The women shouters move in a counterclockwise direction shuffling their feet while singing. Pantomime may also be a part of the ring shout to help convey the story of the song, like rocking a baby.

The congregation of the Mount Calvary Baptist Church in the tiny community in Bolden is known as the keepers of ring shout, a spiritual dance-like practice rooted in the African slave tradition. The practice was first described during the Civil War by outside observers in coastal communities of Georgia and South Carolina and was largely thought to have died out until its rediscovery in the early 1980′s. These shout songs have been passed down from their slave ancestors generation to generation largely intact. The church has a performing group, the McIntosh County Shouters that performs anywhere they are asked to, and recently received a $3000 grant from the Plum Creek Foundation to continue performing the ring shout in area schools.

Join the McIntosh County Shouters at 6 p.m. on July 21 at the Second African Baptist Church, 123 Houston Street. The group hopes to raise money for a trip to perform in Washington, DC at the Kennedy Center on December 1 and at the Lincoln Center on December 2. I hope to see you there!
