Artist's rendering of the Grafton recording studio226 viewsIn 2006, I had asked local artisan Don Henning to create a special present for Alex van der Tuuk. Since no known photo has been found of the Grafton studio, I thought that it would be nice to have Don drawn a rendering based on Alex's research. This is the result. Alex owns the original drawing which cannot be duplicated without permission.

Blue Jay Singers in Sheboygan, WI in 1953.jpg
Blue Jay Singers in Sheboygan, WI in 1953653 viewsA note from Alex:
Here's an article from the Sheboygan Press from 1953 mentioning a performance of the Blue Jay Singers. This is the male quartet that recorded in November 1931 in Grafton, during the same session with King Solomon Hill, Ben Curry and Marshall Owens. Originally from the Birmingham, Alabama area the Blue Jays moved to Chicago and broadcast over the radio and toured the midwestern states in the 1940s and 1950s, esp. univeristy/college circuit. Of the men mentioned being part of the group, only Charles Beal was an original member who recorded in Grafton. One wonders if he was aware that he was at close range of the location where he recorded 22 years before.
