Spending all my youth in Ireland put me off this music genre (I think) when growing up; because literally - My parents would take me to the pub till all hours on a Sunday after mass - listening to bands and watching female relatives get up and sing - I’m talking about the age of toddler to 13. I thought it was so boring. However - revisiting Billie Jo Spears as an adult woman has made me fall in love with this genre of music. These women were tough and strong and knew what was going on in their lives. I take it all back #billiejospears - you make the women that are in the ‘spotlight’ now seem like absolute amateurs - not that I didn’t know it. Here’s to the likes of these women and thumbs down to today’s dullard female artists who don’t have an ounce of sass or balls - but are more worried about what dress they wear to the ‘Met Ball’ or what endorsement will increase their Instagram followers. But I tell you what - their songs would not universally resonate like a song like this does. And I don’t really care because after all - this music will exist forever #billiejospears #bobbiegentry #elizabethcotton #fernkinney #dollyparton #earthakitt #edithpiaf #sisterrosettatharpe

Hailing from the rural Mississippi Delta and growing up in Chicago, Sister Rosetta Tharpe (1915-1973) was a pioneering singer-songwriter and guitarist whose unique & emphatic approach to Gospel laid the foundation for Rock N’ Roll and acted as a critical source of inspiration for all who followed. Born in the small town of Cotton Plant, Arkansas, Rosetta was the only daughter of sharecroppers Katie Bell Harper & Willis Atkins. From traditional evangelist gospel taught by her mother, to the work of Arizona Dranes & Thomas A. Dorsey, music had been ingrained in Rosetta from an early age. Though Arkansas was once seen as a “promised land” to many black Americans in the decades after the Civil War, a growing population in the early 20th century led to increasing segregation and violence. Perhaps it was this emerging animosity that prompted Katie Bell Harper & Rosetta to leave for Chicago in the early 1920s. Once in Chicago, music producers quickly recognized Rosetta’s talent on the guitar, dubbing it a “miracle.” By her later teenage years, Rosetta and Katie Bell moved to New York. With a failed marriage to Thomas Thorpe, Rosetta signed to Decca Records in 1938 and was quickly in-demand among big bands, exploring the world of jazz before returning back to her Gospel roots. Through the 1940s, Rosetta toured with both black and white male Gospel quartets, challenging racial and societal conventions. Her celebrity remained strong, and Rosetta recorded the first hit “Strange Things Happening Everyday,” in 1945. Shortly after, Rosetta began to work with Blues pianist Marie Knight - a formative professional and romantic partnership that lasted until 1951. While her popularity in the States began to wane in the late 1950s, it grew in Great Britain. Rosetta’s performances inspired the next generation and laid a foundation for the explosion of Rock N’ Roll across the globe. From Elvis and Johnny Cash to the Rolling Stones and Chuck Barry, landmark artists of the twentieth century praised Rosetta’s influence on their work. Yet it was only in 2018 that Sister Rosetta Tharpe was formally inducted into the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame - an honor overdue by half a century!

La musica è anche donna lo sapevate? Infatti, durante i miei studi ho scoperto che a differenza di quello che crediamo tutti noi, ad inventare il Rock 'n Roll fu proprio una donna.. Ve ne parlo nel mio blog

My flying V finally got a friend today. Anyone that knows me knows that my favourite guitar is the Gibson SG, I know a lot of people that personally can't stand them but you guys suck 😘. Anyway I have been after an alpine White model for fucking years and they are very fucking hard to come by in the UK that and I've always wanted that #sisterrosettatharpe look. Unless you get a VOS but this model in particular is another limited edition gold series with you guessed it... gold hardware, 57' pups and lock in Grover's with a beautiful 61 neck. My first proper electric was an epiphone sg goth from 2000 ever since then I've been hooked on odd neck placements and odd shaped bodies since. @gibsonguitar your customer service is the shit and thank you for helping me track this ❤️. I'm glad I sourced off my other guitars to have two that will stand the test of time (bar my tokai, that's irreplaceable) and though both have the same 57' pickups, the bodies make them sound so different in an excellent way. @gibsonguitar @gibsoncustom #guitarporn #gear #guitar #guitaristsofinstagram #instagram #instamusic #sisterrosettatharpe #gibsonsg #sg #music #instrument @rigsofdad #guitarist #musician

Fifty-five years ago today, on 7 May 1964, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, the woman who invented rock and roll, stepped out on to the rainy platform of a disused railway station in Chorlton, Manchester, UK. I can hardly imagine what it would have been like to witness that explosion of life and energy. #sisterrosettatharpe #blues #gospel #womeninmusic

Ahh!! So excited to make this announcement: at @richmondlindyexchange this year, I’ll be paying homage to three VA women in jazz on Saturday, May 25. While I could definitely fill three sets of Ella tributes, I’m pumped to dig deeper into the Bailey/Tharpe anthologies—especially because these women both eventually lived in North Philly! As I nerd out, you can expect most of my content to be about these ladies for the month of May.

“The Black Power Tarot “ 🖤♥️🖤 With the likes of Erykah and Andre, Billie Holiday, Tina Turner, Richard Pryor and Malcolm X, it’s hard to pick a favourite - but we are always admiring this beautiful card depicting legend Sister Rosetta Tharpe 💪 Penning hits as early as 1938, the Rock + Roll Hall of Fame writes that “no one deserves a place more than her” 🙏 Her voice + trademark Gibson SG inspired and embodied rock and roll before the term existed. She truly represents the goal of this deck, to represent “26 African American people whom ... followed a true path of illumination despite being born in a country that was so corrupt and vehemently against them.” A beautiful deck and gift for an aspiring or practiced reader! * This deck only contains the major arcana cards *
