The Righteous Mothers are a band of four singer-songwriters and musicians who’ve been part of the Northwest music scene for over 40 years. Their eight CDs include eclectic, genre-bending original songs with witty, to-the-point, tender, and joyful lyrics accompanied by piano, guitar, bass, and percussion.
Their theatrical performances and intricate vocal harmonies offer social comedy and commentary from the political to the personal with songs about ice cream, labor pains, lawyers, and love, bad presidents, annoying dreams, Supreme Court decisions, women’s empowerment, and much more.
Through the years, The Righteous Mothers have managed to balance music and family, and led full careers as professors, teachers, a children’s book author, and a Tribal Court Judge. They are all mothers and have a total of seven righteous children and seven grandchildren with another on the way.
The Righteous Mothers have performed for audiences from twenty-five to thousands in classrooms, coffeehouses, conferences and festivals such as The Kerrville Folk Festival, Bumbershoot, The National Women’s Music Festival, Seattle Folklife, the Canmore and Vancouver Folk Music Festivals.
They also facilitate workshops on topics including: How to Relax and Improve Your Voice; Song Arrangement – a Group Process; and Creative Writing.
