Boudin Barndance playlists and album reviews now archived at


On our first Boudin Barndance of March, we celebrated the music of The Jayhawks for no other reason than I found a picture of myself with them from the 1990s backstage after a show in Providence and it sent me on a journey. We spent the last hour traversing their catalogue. Prior to that, it was our usual Barndance mix. New albums and singles making their Barndance debut tonight included music from Steve Earle, Jeffrey Foucault, The Hold Steady, Mathus & Bird, Melissa Carper, and Charley Crockett. Buttshaker of the week???? The Bottle Rockets with “Bud Nanney Theme.” Now let’s all grab a cold one, or three, and get to the goods….
