Girls who Rock

Another in an occasional series about some of the best female musicians who don't get the recognition they deserve. This is my small way of paying tribute to their giant talents.

One of the best acoustic set players out there is Rosie Flores, who tours constantly, and has since the late-1970s. Her music has been described as "alternative country meets rockabilly revival." But she goes much deeper than that, having started in a punk band, "Penelope's Children." She's also mastered traditional country, blues and even twangy surf-rock. Youtube clips of her are precious and few, but I encourage people to plug her name into Pandora and go on a musical ride through heartfelt lyrics and fiery guitar solos.

Here she is with country vet Dave Alvin:
