Relationships Al Jolson, brother
Job Entertainer
Harry Jolson (1882 - 1953) is the brother of Al Jolson introduced in Season 11 of Murdoch Mysteries, portrayed by Aris Athanasopoulos.


A few years older than Al, Harry Jolson entered show business first, and following his older brother to New York provided Al Jolson's initial entry into the world of entertainment.

Through their lives, their careers diverged and intersected, often playing in the same venues. Al would hire Harry as his manager – some say to keep him off the stage. It has been reported that Harry had the better voice though scant recordings of him belie that supposition.
