Canton Inspired The Country In Music
Canton has long held a position of historical importance in the history of our country. One unlikely field in which the Town surpassed its neighbors was in the field of music. At one time Canton was the inspiration of the country in all areas of musical endeavor.
Historical records indicate that as early as 1762, singing meetings were popular in Stoughton (Canton). About that time the people formed an organization for "practicing vocal music". When the Town was besieged by an epidemic of small pox in 1764, it became necessary to notify the Bridgewater singers that they best remain at home until the plague was gone.
The home of Elijah Crane was a favorite meeting place for the local singers. History has recorded that "sweet singing" was heard at Crane?s place. At another time "fine fiddling" was enjoyed.
The singing group consisted of many notable figures besides Elijah Crane, Elijah Dunbar, John Keeney, Sam Capen, Thomas Crane, George Blackman, Abner Crane and Benjamin Gill are some of the more familiar names found in the group?s membership.
