The 23rd annual Rhythm & Roots Festival coming up on September 3-5 at Ninigret Park in Charlestown, RI was the main order of business on The Boudin Barndance as we welcomed festival producer (and former long-time WRIU Folk & Roots DJ/Director) Chuck Wentworth onto the program to talk about this year’s extravaganza. We spent the 7-9 pm segment of the show doing it playing music from many of the bands and getting the skinny on all things Rhythm & Roots. Always a fun time doing this show and this year’s edition was no exception. Check out for complete information. We spent the 1st hour of the program focusing mainly on new releases. Singles and albums making their Barndance debut tonight came from Jesse Brock, Mark Germino, Cristina Vane, Maggie Rose and Elijah Ocean. Buttshaker of the week???? The Pine Leaf Boys with “Pine Leaf Boogie.” Now let’s all grab a cold one, or two, and get to the goods….
