Rosie & the Riveters


Rosie & the Riveters are Allyson Reigh, Alexis Normand and Farideh Olsen - three fiercely talented and sassy dames from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, who perform uplifting folk music with a vintage 1940s flair! They can spin a slinky melody, roll out glinting harmonies, and hammer down a swinging beat. Their original songs feature sophisticated harmonies, body percussion, humour, and just enough ooh-la-la to keep your toes tapping long after the show is over.
The band's reinvention of vintage folk garnered much national attention for their debut album, Good Clean Fun!, released in 2015. It peaked at #9 on Earshot Magazine's national folk/roots chart, and their single, Ain't Gonna Bother, reached the #5 spot on the CBC Radio 2's national Top 20 countdown. In 2016 they won a Saskatchewan Arts Award (Emerging Artist Category) and they also picked up nominations for a Canadian Folk Music Award (Vocal Group of the Year) and a Western Canadian Music Award (Roots Duo/Group of the Year).
Inspired by Rosie the Riveter, the feminist icon who symbolized 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 though KIVA.org.
Since the band's formation in 2011, the Riveters have quickly taken the folk scene by storm sharing the stage with the likes of Arlo Guthrie, Serena Ryder and Fred Penner. They have become media darlings along the way and have been featured in numerous media outlets including CTV's ETalk Daily's and were most recently called "one of the best live [acts] you'll ever see" by CBC Radio 2 host Rich Terfry. It's easy to see why these hilarious and charming women are a force to be reckoned with!
