Who would have expected the province of Saskatchewan, Canada to be a hotbed of 1940s swing? Allyson Reigh, Alexis Normand, and Farideh Olsen are the charming women who make up Rosie & the Riveters. They channel the Andrews Sisters, with songs from that era and originals in the same style, and top it off with cabaret-style choreography.
Opener Betsy Rose, better known to fellow Folk Project members as Elizabeth Lachowicz, is the Folk Project's resident Blues maven. Her clear voice and saucy style are rooted in the sights and sounds of Chicago's toughest neighborhoods and rowdiest music bars. Her backup band, The Chicago Fire, is packed with some of the Folk Project's finest musicians: Dave Kleiner, Bill Meyer, Mitch Radler, and Mark Schaffer.
The Folk Project is a non-profit 501(c)(3) Corporation whose mission is to present high caliber folk music performances and instructional workshops for the public and members; to encourage development of musicianship and performance skills in the northern New Jersey area; and to provide interesting social and learning activities relating to traditional and participatory folk music and dance.
Funding has been made possible in part by funds from Morris Arts through the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
