A busy night on the Boudin Barndance this evening. We previewed music from Wanda Jackson who appears in the area on November 4 at The Towers in Narragansett ( Also on the bill are The Lustre Kings and The Stumbleweeds.

New releases making the Barndance hit parade for the first time included recordings from Jake Hooker, Eilen Jewell (EP), Chip Taylor & Carrie Rodriguez, Levon Helm, Dan Israel, Will Kimbrough, and Seth Walker.
