Duwayne Burnside with Special Guest Shannon McNally (@McNally) Live at #jukejointfest

Albums, entertainment, events, music

After RL Boyce finished with his performance, he was followed by Duwayne Burnside, RL Burnside’s son, who was joined on stage by the young singer-songwriter Shannon McNally and drummer Dexter Burnside. McNally, originally from Austin, Texas, relocated to Holly Springs a few years ago, and released her most recent album Small Town Talk this month, featuring the songs of the late Louisiana singer and songwriter Bobby Charles. The album exists in both vinyl and compact disc versions, and is being distributed by Memphis-based Select-O-Hits Music Distribution. According to the Juke Joint Festival schedule, Duwayne was supposed to have been joined by his brother Gary, but he told me after the performance that Gary couldn’t make it.
