The Bye Family Ensemble was a family band based in Portland. Family bands encouraged young children to learn how to play a musical instrument and to perform the songs in front of crowds.
The Bye Family Ensemble included parents Terschak and Odelie, daughters Christine and Eleanore, and sons Richard on trumpet and Karl (not pictured). They performed classical music across New England and once at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Terschak (1884-1973) was an immigrant from Norway, while Odelie (1887-1981) was born in Bangor.
