Hi, thanks for dropping by.
To understand and speak Swedish can be a little bit tricky… so for all of you who’s visiting our site and don’t understand this mysterious languages we are Violet Green and all between, a six women strong Swedish rock and blues band who has gathered around the idea of making a tribute to women pioneers in blues and rock´n roll.
A lot of books have been written (and stories been told) about the blues and rock history, but it´s usually a story about the great male influences. We have during our 25-30 years as rock and blues musicians often felt a lack of role models. But thanks to the internet, a new world has opened up in getting in contact with the roots of the music we love.
Violet Green are touring around the Nordic countries – jazz & blues clubs, churches, schools, pubs and theaters, with a show that opens a treasure chest filled with music and anecdotes about the songs and lives of the most outstanding and inspiring blues divas. The motto of the classic blues divas was, Tell it like it is! They broke taboos and protested with black humor against injustice and oppression.
It started in the early 1900’s with “The Mother of the Blues”, Ma Rainey, followed by her friend and protégé Bessie Smith, and after them one legend after another until Amy Winehouse, a vaudeville star of our time.
