Patsy Teenagers


The Patsy Teenagers were a singing group organized and paid for by the Princess Elkhorn Coal Company in David. The group used talent drawn from the children of their workmen to represent them at various coal-related meetings and functions. The group also came to perform at cultural events as well and had a reputation for excellence. The Teenagers performed until the company collapsed financially in 1968.
