A full plate on the Boudin Barndance this evening led by a remembrance of The Storyteller, Tom T. Hall, who passed late last week. We played a set by Tom T. himself followed by a set of some favorite covers. We also played a couple of Stones cuts at show’s end in remembrance of Charlie Watts. Prior to all that, it was our usual mix. New albums and/or singles making their debut tonight included music from Sonny & the Sunsets, Sierra Ferrell, Mike & The Moonpies, Sean Rowe, and Grayson Jenkins.
Buttshaker of the week???? Elroy Dietzel with the original “Rockin’ Bones.” Now let’s all grab a cold one, or three, and get to the goods….
