Grand Opening of ‘Rockabilly’ Exhibit

Rockabilly-Burgess

JONESBORO – Teens living in the 1950s learned to dip, dive and jive to the raucous, rockabilly sound. Now, one can come and learn all about the music that grew up in our back yard at Arkansas State University Museum’s newest exhibit, “Rockabilly! The Northeast Arkansas Story.”

On Thursday, Aug. 15, ASU Museum teams up with the broadcasting service of A-State, KASU, to celebrate the opening of the newly completed exhibit, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Northeast Arkansas played a significant role in shaping and disseminating rockabilly music, an early form of rock ‘n’ roll most widely associated with Elvis Presley’s debut single, “That’s All Right,” recorded in 1954.    MORE
