Back in the Boudin Barndance saddle this week after a week off in Indiana corn country. Mixed things up for a large chunk of the program before closing things out with tracks from some of the artists who’ll be appearing at the Rhythm & Roots Festival happening right in this neck of the woods at Ninigret Park in Charlestown, RI. Check out for the complete scoop. Lots of first timers making the Barndance hit parade this evening including recent releases from Chris Smither, Darrell Scott, Todd Snider, Malcolm Holcombe, The Drams, Rose’s Pawn Shop, and Old Crow Medicine Show. Buttshaker of the night????? A no-brainer with Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas taking the honors with “Do It Now”. Now onto the goods….
