An ultra-busy evening on The Boudin Barndance tonight. We previewed a
couple of upcoming festivals and gave away passes for each. First up was
The Blast From the Bayou Cajun/Zydeco Festival happening June 5-8 at
Strawberry Park in Preston, Connecticut. Next was a whopper preview of The
Roots on the River Festival in Bellows Falls, VT, also running June 5-8.
They have a terrific lineup. Check out for the
complete skinny. Also previewed music from Paul Burch who plays a house
concert hosted by yours truly on Saturday evening. Birthday salutes went
out to the late Johnny Paycheck and the very alive Danny Roy Young of the
Cornell Hurd Band. New releases making the Barndance hit parade for the
first time included recordings from Wendy Colonna, Fayssoux, Peter Cooper,
Eleven Hundred Springs, and Justin Trevino. Buttshaker of the week????
Truckin’ style with Chris “Sugarballs’ Sprague doing “East Bound & Down”.
