Brick Street Show
One of nine siblings, Rebekah Pulley grew up in rural Alaska listening to her dad, Wallace, [Sidenote: Wallace Pulley played guitar on Charlie Ryan’s original recording of Hot Rod Lincoln)] playing guitar. At a young age, she taught herself to play the instrument by ear.
I am not certain [how many original songs I’ve written] — somewhere in the hundreds … although I only like two of them.
With 5 full-length CDs under her belt, Pulley has earned critical respect and fan adulation alike. Her latest release is Tralala.
Although she has a backing band, The Reluctant Prophets, Pulley made her official Woody Guthrie Festival appearance accompanied by the house band, the Oklahoma Geniuses. She performed at the Brick Street Café. Festival regular Ronnie Elliot joined in on Pulley’s final pair of songs.
