The Xmas edition of The Boudin Barndance found us devoting the last half of the program to various holiday hi jinks. Revelers filled the studio for our annual Yuletide potluck. Also on the agenda was a feature of music from Bettye LaVette who performs at the Met Cafe ( in Pawtucket next Thursday night. A couple of recent releases making their Barndance debuts tonight were albums from William Tyler and Sharon Van Etten. Buttshaker of the week????
