Ever since people began to recognise the concept of different notes in music, there have been groups gathered together to sing. Religious choirs, rural folk passing on traditional stories in musical form, cowboys around the campfire, soldiers shouting words to match their marching cadence, school kids chanting the latest popular melody - all using the power of song to tell a story, create harmonious sounds, enjoy the camaraderie, or all of the foregoing. Given the past norm of large families, no surprise that a lot of singing groups formed around siblings, but with a marked separation of the sexes - there were 'brother' groups and no shortage of 'sister' groups, but few mixed ones. Once the record business got into its stride during the 20th-Century, the singing group became a significant part of its offerings, and thus we are able to enjoy the results for all the years to come - let's start here
