The Andrews Sisters. The name conjures indelible images: soldiers listening to a jukebox in the canteen; packed theaters with rabid fans jitterbugging in the aisles; and a brass-voiced trio of lanky women in chiffon dresses and bouffant hairdos.
The story of the Andrews sisters is certainly one of Depression-era grit and optimism. But it took far more than raw talent and pluck to create one of the most popular singing groups the world has ever seen. Years of hard work rehearsing and touring, changes in how Americans bought and heard music, and a cast of devoted family and friends all helped turn three working-class girls from Minnesota into The Queens of the Jukebox.
"Boogie woogie" on up to the Songbook Exhibit Gallery to learn more about these legendary singing sisters, view original artifacts and memorabilia from The Andrews Sisters collection, and sing the Songbook with an interactive display of rare audio recordings and endless performance footage.
Images and artifacts for this exhibit are taken in part from the Robert Boyer Collection at The Great American Songbook Foundation.
