Rebekah Pulley is a St. Petersburg, FL based singer-songwriter and performer whose sultry, seasoned voice has been described as jaw dropping, with a tendency to break your heart and shake your soul. Her songwriting, live performances, and recordings have wryly evolved, tapping roots-rock, blues, old-school country & western, jazz, and even gospel earning her 7 ‘Best Of The Bay’ awards from Tampa Bay’s own Creative Loafing.
Rebekah was raised in a musical household on wheels (aka: Winnebago) with her nine siblings throughout rural Alaska, East Texas, and Washington State. A self taught guitarist, she gained an ear for music by listening to her father play his rockabilly style guitar with country greats such as Charlie Ryan with whom he recorded the original version of Hot Rod Lincoln. Rebekah’s latest release, Tralala, was the top played CD on Tampa’s WMNF 88.5 FM and is a must have for even the most discerning Americana, Alt-Country, and Folk music fans.
Ronny Elliott will open the show. Ronny Elliott was born in 1947. He insists that rock’n’roll was, too. Frequently referred to as a cult artist he has stories that he claims to be tired of telling. Elvis offered to teach him karate. He was assigned the lowly task of holding up Jimi’s Marshall cabinets in case he “whacked” them after opening the show. He has played on bills with Van Morrison, the Allman Brothers, Wilco, Sly & The Family Stone, Michael Bloomfield, Canned Heat, Steve Miller, NRBQ, Patti Smith, Pete Seeger, Steve Earle and lots of other folks that he looks up to. He has toured with Bo Diddley and Bill Haley and the Comets and backed Chuck Berry, the Coasters and Gene Vincent on tour. He is as comfortable onstage at Lincoln Center for the Roots of American Music Festival as he is cramped into a corner at the Borderline in London; as much at home in a dive bar down the street in Tampa as at the Woody Guthrie Festival in Okemah, Oklahoma.
