A Minnesota Ladies Blues Society That Celebrates The Full Bodied Blues
Help us preserve the voices, skills and history of women in music by becoming part of this innovative non-profit organization. The mission of the Minnesota Ladies Blues
Society is to support and empower the women who make blues music possible.
On stage and behind the scenes, fabulous females are rapidly dominating the blues and jazz industries. Women have stepped out of the kitchen and into the boardroom where they shine as performers, producers, writers, promoters, movers, shakers and decision-makers. The MLBS was created to establish a network of women to inform and educate, to foster greater communication and to increase awareness about the female side of blues and jazz music.
In Delta blues lyrics of the 1920's and 30's, the term "biscuit roller" referred to a woman's traditional role in the kitchen. In contemporary times, however, the term has evolved to mean a woman who isn't bound by outdated beliefs. A biscuit roller now means a sassy, provocative woman whose hips "roll" freely when she moves. If you're one of these
hip-shakin', blues lovin' Mamas, then this Minnesota Ladies Blues Society is just what you need!
