Rosie & the Riveters
Rosie & the Riveters are fiercely talented and sassy dames from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, who perform uplifting folk music with a vintage 1940s flair! Ask these spirited femmes to spin a slinky melody, roll out glinting harmonies, or hammer down a swinging beat, and you can bet what the answer is going to be: “We can do it!”. Their original songs feature sophisticated harmonies, body percussion, scintillating dance moves, humour, and just enough ooh-la-la to keep your toes tapping long after the show is over.
Inspired by Rosie the Riveter, the feminist icon who symbolized the women’s movement into the workforce during WWII, the Riveters seek to empower women to be ambassadors for change within their own communities. In support of this vision, they invest 20% of their merchandise profits in women’s projects around the world through KIVA.org.
