American pop music started in Boston? Yes; in the early 1830s a young Oliver Ditson started publishing "Music for the Millions," songs for the nascent middle class musicians to learn and sing. Many have passed into Tradition, such as My Darling Nelly Grey and Tenting Tonight, some were arrangements of folk songs. The Proper Ladies sing the songs, and tell the stories behind them. Come sing the old favorites with us; sigh to the beautiful, rare gems.
