The Acorn Sisters

About The Group

The Acorn Sisters were indeed a group of sisters from the state of Kentucky. Joe Grieshop was president of Acorn Records at the time and signed the girls to a recording contract. But to avoid confusion with another group that was using their real family name, they took on the name associated with the record label. However, no mention was made of their real family name.

They later recorded for Starday and the Boone Record company.

Some further research, it appears the trio were:

  • Goldy Brown (B: May 29, 1941 — D: November 17, 2003)
  • (Martha) Evelyn Brown Bowen (B: May 4, 1935 — D: June 23, 2020)
  • Rose Marie Knight Brown (B: 1934 — D: )
