Jim Barrett

Young Buffalo kicks off Oxford Music Festival on Thacker Mountain Radio

Page 7 in this week’s issue of Oxford Town features a Q&A with Barrett about the band’s upcoming performances – two of them – as the Oxford Music Festival’s headliner tonight (Feb. 9) at the Lyric Theater. Thacker Mountain Radio officially kicks off the 2012 Oxford Film and Music Festivals at the venue tonight at 6 featuring YB. (February 9, 2012, Page 7)
