Paralyzing the Boys: The Seven Singing Sutherland Sisters
Join me for this fascinating exploration of the 7 Sutherland Sisters of Lockport, who took the late 19th century world by storm not only for their incredibly long hair (reputed to be 37 feet in combined length, due to their father's 'miraculous' hair tonic) but for their wonderful voices. We'll focus on Victoria Sutherland Craw who’s buried here in FLC; and then Naomi Sutherland Bailey, who had a miraculously low Bass voice. Like Naomi and Metropolitan Opera star/ low Contralto Kathleen Howard (also buried at FLC), Ms. Fatta is a female Baritone, and will perform live arias demonstrating the low female singing voice, with accompanist Roland E. Martin and surprise guests! Suzanne sings Bass with the world-famous Vivaldi's Women ensemble, and research about this group will shed light on the history of Low-Voiced Females.
