Re: Donovan's Tennessean Jubilee Singers
In Response To: Donovan's Tennessean Jubilee Singers ()
Wondering if any of these may have been members of the Fisk Jubilee singers or anyway associated ?
I found a mention of this group listing 13 members, mostly African-American musicians. See the 1880 U.S. Federal Census for Rome City, Orange Township, Noble County, Indiana, page 9 of 9. It's unusual for the census to notate a traveling music group by name, so I googled them and found a query in your website archives from 2003. I also learned that they came from Central Tennessee University in Nashville, TN (no longer in existence). Hope this is of interest to someone.
