This chapter describes the background and early career of the Hutchinson family singers. They struggled to become popular to no avail until they aligned themselves with reform and began singing temperance songs. They soon became the popular choice for would-be concert goers looking to acquire the styles, tastes and sensibilities of a rising middle-class.

Keywords:   Hutchinson Family Singers, abolitionism, middle class culture, market revolution, gender ideology, romanticism, reform movements, antebellum era, Second Great Awakening
