p_colleenssing.jpg All that can presently (July 2023) be gleaned about The Singing Colleens from sheet music covers and by Internet searching is that they were presumably American actress/singers who have been featured on 4 works published between 1899 and 1909.
Their portrait, described as Max Witt's Singing Colleens, on the left is taken from La-la! Oo-la-la-la! (1909) music by Al C. Murphy, words by Ballard MacDonald and published by Jos. W. Stern & Co., New York, USA.
Surfers are welcome to contribute any further information about these performers.
