Description: Mara Crisp in performance

Mara Crisp is originally from Illinois. She began her career at the age of seven with her father's band, the John Crisp Trio. Upon moving to Columbus, she and her sister Dorothy Crisp began singing with Hank Marr as the Crisp Sisters. The sisters were booked by the Holloway Agency. When Dorothy left the duo, Mara continued to perform until she retired to raise her family. Crisp remained an active singer with her church choir and continues to reside in Columbus. She is pictured here with "Chick-a-dee and Chick-a-doo."
