Barn Dance from Nora Jane & the Party Line

Carnival - Nora Jan Struthers & The Party LineNora Jane Struthers & the Party Line have released a live video, shot last week in Nashville. It was actually their first live show as a band, after spending time in the studio last year recording their first album together, due for an April release.

Struthers released a pair of records on her own before joining up with Bearfoot in 2011, with whom she recorded and toured until the Fall of 2012. She also toured sporadically with her own group, The Bootleggers, as a solo act, and as a duo with P.J. George. But she is now committed to the new band, who will be traveling all over the US in the coming year.

Jane is on guitar, and George on bass, with Aaron Lewis on fiddle, Joe Overton on banjo and Drew Lawhorn on percussion. Here’s their live take on Barn Dance, a Struthers song included on the upcoming album.


Look for the new CD, Carnival, on April 16.
