JETTA WREN and the WRANGLERS

JETTA WREN is the Rockabilly alter-ego of Alison Affleck, well-known Jazz singer around Edinburgh, together with fellow American Tom Davis on guitar, and Jenny Hill on Upright Bass. The band will be joined tonight by Stretch Dawrson, Scotland’s best-known Western Swing star.

Rockabilly is one of the earliest styles of rock and roll music, dating to the early 1950s.

The term “rockabilly” is a portmanteau of “rock” (from “rock ‘n’ roll”) and “hillbilly”, the latter a reference to the country music (often called “hillbilly music” in the 1940s and 1950s) that contributed strongly to the style’s development.
Other important influences on rockabilly include western swing, boogie woogie, and rhythm and blues. While there are notable exceptions, its origins lie primarily in the Southern United States.
