Description: Long before MP3′s, CDs, Vinyl and even Edison’s Phonograph, an evening’s musical entertainment often involved singing songs around a piano in the family’s parlor. Family and friends would gather to play and sing songs of their day from printed sheet music. Many of the songs dropped out of popularity as newer songs were printed and sung. Eventually, the old sheet music was set aside and forgotten. AntiqueMusic.net is bringing some of those songs back from obscurity.

The Fenian Sons play all over the Boston area and have played at the famous House of Blues and even Fenway Park. Our latest Cd is titled 617 and was released Nov 2013.
