Concertgoers at New York’s City Vineyard were treated to a fine night of dining, and fine music by the guitar-shredding “twins from other mothers” Rosie Flores and Earl Slick. Flores, the famous Rockabilly Filly from Austin, and Slick, perhaps best known as David Bowie’s lead guitar player, provided the packed house with an intimate yet thoroughly rocking show.

Trading off between acoustic and electric guitars, the duo weaved a tapestry of original tunes and covers of classics that made the night truly memorable. Favorites included music from Rosie’s much-anticipated blues album, due out in early 2018, as well as a soulful cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Ruby Tuesday,” played by Slick on a vintage Gibson 12-string to the dulcet vocals of Flores.

Earl Slick and Rosie Flores are long-time friends and collaborators who plan to add more New York concerts to their busy schedules in the near future. Do yourself a favor look for upcoming shows and album releases. You won’t be disappointed.
