Songstress With a Twang
Rebecca Pronsky, of Brooklyn, N.Y., has her own special twang. Pronsky and her band will perform Sunday, July 25, at the Postmaster's House in Aberdeen as part of Summer on the Porch.
Opening the concert at 6 p.m. are the Swang Brothers, a trio of smooth rockabilly throwbacks to the time of great diners and drive-in movies, with a modern twist.
Pronsky, who has been singing since she was a child, began writing songs at the age of 16. At Brown University, Pronsky studied ethnomusicology and jazz singing and recorded her first demo of original music, "Milestone." Demo and diploma in hand, she moved back to Brooklyn. Frustrated with the overwhelming worlds of both songwriting and New York City, she founded the Brooklyn Songwriters Exchange to create community among local artists. Now in its fifth year, the BSX continues to present great local musical talent, and Pronsky still hosts and curates the series.
In addition to the fantastic music, it is time for the annual cake baking contest.
"Bake your favorite cake for free admission to the show and a chance to win a season pass," says Janet Kenworthy, organizer.
The Postmaster's House is located at 204 E. South St.
Picnics are welcome, and the venue is handicapped accessible. If it's raining, head to Poplar Knight Spot, 114 Knight St., Aberdeen, which is the rain location.
Admission for adults is $8, with children under 12 admitted free. Tickets may be purchased in advance online, www.theroosterswife.org, with credit or debit cards, or at the gate with cash and checks.

The Rooster's Wife is a nonprofit association created to present the performing arts and arts education to build and sustain community.
