THE sister of legendary performer Jerry Lee Lewis is coming to Barnstaple on Saturday to headline a 12 hour rock 'n' roll party at the Cedars Hotel.Linda Gail Lewis still performs alongside her famous brother but is an international artist in her own right, an accomplished "boogie pianist" and an engaging entertainer.The gig is being hosted by the Barnstaple Rock 'n' Roll Club and along with Linda Gail, fans can expect a great show with top bands including Memphis 56 and the Rat Pack, back by popular demand.Club member Bill James said there was great anticipation at the prospect of hearing Linda Gail play:"For us, it's someone who has been around all the 50s styles - she knew Elvis, for example!" he said.The singer, who first recorded in the famous Sun studios at age 12 and went on to have hits both with and without her brother, is also very approachable and is likely to spend plenty of time before her set chatting with the audience.The event begins at 1pm, with Linda Gail expected on stage at about 8.30. There will also be music from DJs Dynamite Dave and Midnight Shift, plus a pre-1965 car show, CD and trade stalls.Tickets costing £12 are available at the door or call Bill on 07899 701498.
