Sister Rosetta Tharpe



This will only be online until the 24th of January, and for those of you who are not in the UK you'll need to do that proxy-thingy in order to watch it, but this BBC documentary on pioneering guitarist and singer Sister Rosetta Tharpe is well worth seeing.

The Godmother of Rock & Roll

Also I love her vibe in this photo, taken at a concert at a disused train station near Manchester and filmed for ITV - matching a white swing coat and stilettos to a white SG, and a white Telecaster ready to go in the background.
