A Little Light Summer Reading Part 2

New from Voyager Press comes the essential book of Rockabilly music. This new hardcover book entitled “Rockabilly: The Twang Hear ‘Round the World” was released on May 15. It contains 232 pages of full color and black & white photos of some of the most famous musicians of Rockabilly music.

After you get over the wonderful pictures and illustrations, you then can begin to discover the history of rockabilly music. Although many know about the Rockabilly roots of Elvis Presley and Carl Perkins, the book goes more in-depth to discuss the beginnings of unsung heroes like Billy Riley, Sonny Burgess, and Wanda Jackson. Along with all the great artists of Rockabilly, the book also talks about the clothing and guitars that were used to create this hot new brand of music. The book is plastered with many great concert posters as well as the singles that made Rockabilly history.

Rockabilly guitarist and writer Michael Dregni pulled together all this history and organized it into this outstanding, must-have hardcover book. Brians Setzer, Scotty Moore, Rev. Horton Heat among others also contributed to this amazing piece of written music history. For more information on this release and other Voyageur Press products please visit voyageurpress.com.
