Over the past three days, Grammy-nominated Wanda Jackson (http://www.wandajackson.com/) (aka "The First Lady of Rock" and the "Rockabilly Filly"), who has been inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame and the Oklahoma Country Music Hall of Fame (among other honors), has been on hand at the "Roots of Rock" workshop in Port Townsend at Fort Warden State Park sharing her wisdom from over storied 50 years in the rock business. Jackson got her start playing guitar and singing country music as a teenager in the 50s, and-- after encouragement from her friend Elvis Presley--turned her hand to rock. With hits like "Fujiyama Mama" (which made her a sensation in Japan) and a cover of Elvis Presley's "Let's Have a Party, "which became a top 40 hit in the 60s, Jackson made an indelible mark on the music world at a time when women were supposed to be keeping house and having babies.
