Bonnie Raitt Parents: Meet John Raitt and Marjorie Haydock

Bonnie Raitt was born in Burbank, California to John Raitt and Marjorie Haydock.

Her mother, Marge Goddard, was a pianist, while her father, John Raitt, was an actor in musical productions including Oklahoma! and The Pajama Game.

Who are Bonnie Raitt’s parents?

Raitt is of Scottish ancestry; her ancestors constructed Rait Castle near Nairn. John Raitt’s job as a theater actor meant Bonnie did not interact with him as much as she would have liked.

Raitt grew to resent her mother, as she became the main authority figure of the household whenever John was away.
