The first Barndance of December was one without much of an agenda. We played the field quite a bit and hopefully you got to listen. If not you can check the archive of tonight’s show at New music making its Barndance debut tonight included albums from Alison Krauss & Robert Plant, Houndmouth , Triptides (EP), and Emily Scott Robinson and a new single from Anais Mitchell’s upcoming album. Buttshaker of the week???? Birthday boy Freddie “Boom Boom” Cannon with “Tallahassee Lassie.” Now let’s all grab a cold one or three, and get to the goods….
