Rosie going to church
St. Mary’s Church hosting Rosie and the Riveters
Rosie and the Riveters will perform at St. Mary’s Church in Indian River on Aug. 13, 7:30 p.m.
The vintage folk trio has been compared to the “Andrews Sisters crossed with the Good Lovelies.” Tickets are available from the festival box office.
The group is playing its first shows in the Maritimes this week. Its reinvention of vintage folk attracted national accolades for its debut album, “Good Clean Fun” (in the CBC VML) which was released in 2015.
The album reached No. 9 on Earshot Magazine’s national folk/roots chart, and the single, “Ain’t Gonna Bother”, reached the No. 5 spot on the CBC Radio 2’s national Top 20 countdown. In 2016, the band received the Saskatchewan arts award for emerging artist. They also received nominations for Canadian Folk Music Award, vocal group of the year and a western Canadian music award, roots duo/group of the year.
