PULLMAN, Wash. — “The Righteous Mothers,” a group of Washington women who sing and play instruments, will perform March 25 on the Pullman campus.
The four moms sing songs about ice cream, labor pains, annoying dreams and Supreme Court decisions. The group specializes in vocal harmonies while accompanying themselves on the keyboard, bass and acoustic guitar, and percussion.
The four have husbands, children and other careers in which they are involved and must balance as well. Clare Meeker is a children’s author and has published three books. Lisa Brodoff is a clinical law professor at Seattle University Law School and a Tribal Court judge. Marla Elliot is an adjunct professor at The Evergreen State College. Wendy Crocker teaches piano and is in the middle of a career change from occupational health to teaching secondary education. Between the four women, there are six children ages 7-14.
“The Righteous Mothers” will play at the WSU Women’s Recognition Luncheon as a teaser for a 3 p.m. free, public program in the Compton Union Building Auditorium.
Their music ranges from folk to rock-n-roll, tango to gospel, Caribbean to the blues. They have released four recordings: “The Righteous Mothers,” “Stand Up,” “All the Rage and None of the Calories” and “Pesky Angels.”
