Burt Shepard

Burt Shepard (?–1913) began his career as a female impersonator before joining a minstrel troupe in 1874. On records, Shepard, a baritone, specialized in comic monologues and songs, projected with a wry sense of humor. On stage he frequently accompanied himself on the piano. Shepard made recordings as early as 1898 for the Berliner Gramophone Company. In 1900 he began a six-year association with E. R. Johnson and Victor Records. Shepard was extremely popular in England and enjoyed long stays in that country until his death there in 1913.
