A few tickets still remain of this weekend's show at the Culture Center Theater, featuring Wanda Jackson, Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore & the Wronglers, Scotland's New Rope String Band and Carolyn Wonderland.
Wanda Jackson is the undisputed queen of rockabilly, and at 73 is going stronger than ever with her new Jack White-produced album, aptly titled The Party Ain't Over. Just this weekend, Jackson was recognized by Spin magazine as having one of the best sets at Bonnaroo.
No stranger to Mountain Stage audiences, Joe Ely has epitomized the rugged Texas singer/songwriter tradition. As a
member of the legendary ‘70s band the Flatlanders - which also featured
fellow Texans Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Butch Hancock - he helped pioneer
the alt-country genre. His first release of new material in four years is Satisfied at Last.
And speaking of Jimmie Dale Gilmore -- he's also on this Sunday's show, backed by The Wronglers, a bluegrass band headed up by San Francisco billionaire-impresario-banjoist Warren Hellman, founder of the wildly popular Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival. Their record is called Heirloom Music.
Powerful blues-rocker Carolyn Wonderland will also appear. Carolyn's incendiary guitar
and raw, powerful vocals draw instant comparisons to fellow Texans Janis

And finally, The New Rope String Band will make their first ever appearance in the United States, all the way from the Scotland. Combining superb musicianship with side-splitting comic genius, the
three members of the New Rope String Band are truly unique entertainers.
Elements of circus, clowning, vaudeville, slapstick and sheer inspired
silliness are spliced with beautiful acoustic music from various world
