APPENDIX B:
Concert Itineraries of
Hutchinson Family Tours:
1840-July 1846
Many sources were consulted in order to piece together the Hutchinsons' concert schedule. To begin, I compiled a list from the published sources, which occasionally included precise dates. More dates and places from extant posters, programs, and tickets fleshed out the itineraries somewhat. Newspaper files provided reviews from those towns and cities where the Hutchinsons performed and this sometimes supplied further information noting where the Family had been or was going, duly entered into the record. From this, an outline of the tour's geographical shape became apparent. Further map-gazing, noting likely concert venues at points between known concert dates, offered other possibilities, which were then checked against the advertisement or review column of that town's newspapers, and sometimes new dates were added to the itinerary. Just as often, the process started over again.The itineraries are not complete. Likely they can never be complete. Based on the theory of diminishing returns, where the same information is gathered using different research techniques, I estimate that more than three-quarters of the Hutchinson Family's concerts for the period are documented, and perhaps as many as ninety-five percent of them are. In any case, the outlines of their touring schedules are certainly here, suggesting that itineracy was a rigorous, demanding way of life, a proposition confirmed in the pages of their journals.
