SEPT 7: Alt Country A to Z with a focus on the “D” artists

The usual full plate on The Boudin Barndance this evening. We opened the show with primarily new releases during the first hour before moving into out weekly C&W segment. That was followed by a remembrance of honky tonker Vernon Oxford who passed in mid-August. It was then onto some odds & ends before closing with a blast of tunes from artists appearing at this weekend’s Rhythm & Roots Festival at Ninigret Park in Charlestown, RI. New albums and singles making their Barndance debut tonight came from Lola Kirke, Viv & Reilly, Rhiannon Giddens, Old Crow Medicine Show, Jim Lauderdale & the Po Ramblin Boys, Steep Canyon Rangers, Hiss Golden Messenger, and Florry. Buttshaker of the week???? The Leroi Brothers with “Devil Shake Woman.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
