The Righteous Mothers are four feisty, funny, philosophical female folk-rock musicians who have been one of the Northwest’s foremost musical performing groups for the past 29 years. They whip their audience into a frenzy with zany original music, witty theatrics, and mind-boggling, intricate vocal harmonies. The Righteous Mothers grab hearts and funny bones with songs about ice cream, labor pains, annoying dreams and Supreme Court decisions. They surprise and delight young and old, gay and straight, male and female with their quirky humor and open hearts.
The award winning Righteous Mothers manage to balance music, family and other careers. They lead full lives as professors, teachers, a children’s book author and a Tribal Court Judge. They are all mothers and between them have a total of seven righteous children ranging in age from 10 to 27 years old.
They perform for audiences from twenty-five to thousands in classrooms, coffeehouses, conferences and festivals such as Kerrville Folk Festival, Bumbershoot, National Women’s Folk Music Festival and Vancouver Folk Festival.
The group’s music defies definition. Their original tunes range in genres from Folk to Rock n’ Roll, Tango to Gospel, Caribbean to the Blues. To date, they have released seven recordings: The Righteous Mothers, Stand Up, All the Rage: and none of the calories, Pesky Angels, A Million Things, Best of the Righteous Mothers: The First 25 Years and Dream
