SummerTyne Americana Festival 2012

Wanda Jackson plus very special guests The Puppini Sisters and Jenny O

Sage One

Oklahoma-born ‘Queen of Rockabilly’ Wanda Jackson has been making records for over half a century and shows no signs of slowing down, with recent collaborations such as her 2011 album ‘The party ain’t over’ (produced by Jack White) confirming her as a major player in 20th century music history.

In 2009 Wanda was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, endorsed by Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, and Bruce Springsteen. She has influenced a generation of artists from Rosanne Cash to Cyndi Lauper and Rosie Flores, and made an indelible impression on the worlds of country music and rock n’ roll. | Facebook | Twitter |
