Wanda Jackson to Perform on NPR's "World Cafe"

Jackson resumes her US tour later this month at Lincoln Hall in Chicago and continues through the spring, including performances at the Stagecoach festival and at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's annual benefit concert in May.
She will also be featured in a new exhibit at the Hall of Fame titled Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power, which opens May 13. The exhibit will document the important roles women have played in rock and roll, highlighting, says the Hall, "the flashpoints, the firsts, the best, the celebrated—and sometimes lesser-known women—who moved rock and roll music and the American culture forward."

The Washington Post, reviewing Jackson's recent performance at the 9:30 Club, said The Party Ain't Over offers "a fresh gateway to Jackson's music—a gutsy, greasy strain of seminal heartland rock-and-roll to which any White Stripes fan is probably susceptible."
