The Hess Sisters
Last updated: 01.10.23
p_hesssis.jpg All that can presently (July 2023) be gleaned about The Hess Sisters from sheet music covers and by Internet searching is that they were presumably American vaudeville singing comediennes and dancers who have been featured on 3 works published between 1911 and 1913.
Their portrait on the left is taken from My Brown Eyed Baby Boy (1911) music by Henry I. Marshall, words by Stanley Murphy and published by Chas. K. Harris, New York, USA.
Surfers are welcome to contribute any further information about these performers.
