Hardy Williamson

English concert and oratorio tenor. In the 1910s, he was active in and around New York City, singing his customary concerts, but also comprimario roles (Tybalt, Remendado) with the Century Opera Company. He must also have studied in New York, since he was a pupil of basso Yeatman Griffith, who taught voice there. His 1920s Vocalion recordings were made in London, so he would seem to have gone back to England by then.

Hardy Williamson sings Il trovatore: Home to our mountains, with Margaret Balfour
I wish to thank Anton Bieber for the recording and label scan.
