The Shepard Family. Massachusetts, 1888 

Posted 6/28/2007 2:48:00 AM

The Shepard Family Concert Company was a Massachusetts-based musical performance troupe that was active in the 1880s and '90s. It consisted of Mr. and Mrs. J.M. Shepard and their five very talented children (from oldest to youngest): the four daughters-- Kittie, Laura, Lessie, and Georgie-- and son Burtin (sic). For their programs, The Shepard Family would perform in different configurations: as a choral group, a brass band, and a violin ensemble comprised of Dad and the kids, backed up by Mom on the pump reed organ. The Shepard kids also performed as a banjo quintet. (Collection of Shlomo Pestcoe)
