  Dolcy Jones
   

Dolcy Jones is a lively costumed quartet established in 2003 by Arthur Kirmss to perform early American vocal music at its best — from the dawn of the colonial era through the Civil War years. Its principal singers — soprano Susan Hugelmeyer, alto Lisa Kelly, tenor Dan Entriken and bass Arthur Kirmss — are each accomplished musicians who have done a wide variety of solo work with voices and instruments in venues ranging from small museums and concert halls to the Broadway stage. Named "Dolcy Jones" after an 1850's song of that title by Stephen Foster, the quartet presents a wide dramatic range — heroic, nostalgic, sentimental and joyous.

Celebrating the richness and hidden beauty of historic American music, Dolcy Jones brings new life to little-known or forgotten examples. In a Brooklyn Parlor comprises mostly forgotten or neglected music that was written in Brooklyn and New York City during the 19th century.
