Comments
Hutchinson was a musically inclined farmer and inventor, who became a serious abolitionist around 1835. He formed The Hutchinson Family Singers in approximately 1840, which became famous for their repertoire of anti-slavery sons and tight vocal harmonies. The original group consisted of Jesse, Jr., and three of his brothers. (The Hutchinson family consisted of 12 children.) Jesse also supported temperance and women's rights, and the group took up these causes. Jesse stopped singing in the group relatively soon after its formation, but continued writing songs and managing the group.
