Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Rosie Flores began her musical career in California playing a mix of country, rockabilly, and surf guitar as a member of cow-punk band Screaming Sirens. Her first solo album for Reprise Records was produced by Pete Anderson and yielded the single “Crying Over You,” the first by a Latina artist to appear on Billboard’s country charts. Flores’s 1995 album, Rockabilly Filly, featured duets with Wanda Jackson and Janis Martin, and re-introduced these pioneering rockabilly singers to modern audiences. Flores will play songs from her catalog and her latest release, Working Girl’s Guitar, as well as holiday classics from her Christmasville album. Presented in support of the exhibit The Bakersfield Sound: Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, and California Country, Support provided by Academy of Country Music, Ford Motor Company Fund, and SunTrust. Limited seating available. Museum admission or Museum membership required for program admittance.
