Welcome to the Club: The Women of Rockabilly


Big Sky Film Series

While the best known figures in the glory days of rockabilly were men—most notably Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Gene Vincent, and Eddie Cochran—there was also a handful of women who were determined to make their mark wailing on the fusion of country and R&B styles. Welcome to the Club: The Women of Rockabilly is a documentary which looks at the careers of pioneering female rockers Wanda Jackson, Brenda Lee, Janis Martin, and Lorrie Collins, in which they share their stories of blazing a trail for wild, new sounds in the ‘50s while facing down stereotypes of how women in music were supposed to look, sound, and behave. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
