Well, at least their memory and a celebration of them is. The Historic New Orleans Collection is featuring an exhibit honoring them … and the opening reception is tonight – 6:30 to 8:00 P.M.!
The Boswell Sisters were a close harmony vocal trio singing in the new jazz style in the 20s and 30s. They inspired a subsequent generation of singers, including the Andrew Sisters. The enclosed photo includes Connee’s frequent duet partner, Bing Crosby (the most popular male vocalist of the 30s!).
“Shout, Sister, Shout! The Boswell Sisters of New Orleans” is one of the many rotating exhibits that the Collection features. They are always excellent and always FREE. Don’t delay in getting to this one. It closes on October 26th.
