Wait a minute folks! What is this?
I hear some cacklin’. Could it be the Henriettas?
Our very own homegrown revival of the 1930s Cackle Sisters?
Step back in time with me to the 1937 Purina Mills Checkerboard Time radio program.
Welcome girls, have you got a song for us?
Well here they are folks: big as life and twice as pretty, that fine feathered pair of song sisters singing He Left Me Standing There.
The Henriettas are a great opening act for bluegrass,
old-time, country and roots music festivals.

The Henriettas are
Nell Robinson and Cary Sheldon.
Their inspiration are the
Cackle Sisters (pictured left),
Mary Jane DeZurik (1917-1981)
and Carolyn DeZurik (b. 1918),
the first women to become
stars on both the National Barn Dance
and the Grand Ole Opry.
