Wanda Jackson at Newport Folk Fest 2011 (more by Jim Brueckner)
Wanda Jackson

As mentioned, queen of rockabilly Wanda Jackson is releasing a new album, Unfinished Business, this year and supporting it with a tour which brings her to NYC for a show on October 12 at Highline Ballroom. Tickets for that show are still available.

She's since expanded her tour and it now includes another date in the NYC area even sooner, which happens at Maxwell's on August 17. Tickets for that show are on sale now. The Maxwell's show is one day before Wanda heads to Philly for the Philadelphia Folk Festival which goes down from August 17-19 with sets from Steve Earle and the Dukes, Lucinda Williams, Deno Band, Pokey LaFarge, Strand of Oaks, Arborea and others. The full lineup is listed below. Tickets for the fest are on sale now.
