(The Rockabilly Scene)

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

For enthusiasts, rockabilly isn't just a kind of music, it's a way of life. A raw fusion of rhythm and blues with country and western, rockabilly heralded the start of the teenage rebellion in America in the early 1950s. The stripped down sound witnessed a revival in the 1970s and has continued until today, with rockabillies embracing not only the music but the clothes, cars and lifestyle of 1950s youth counterculture. Rockin' is photographer Andrew Shaylor's unique portrayal and subsequent book of the contemporary rockabilly scene. Shaylor captures the raw energy of the music and the commitment of the rockabilly community to authenticity.
