Local 518 singer-songwriter Jim Gaudet weighed in on that tragic day, too, with his powerful song, “Six Seconds in Dallas.” But Gaudet isn’t jumping on the anniversary bandwagon. The song first appeared on his cassette-only release In Real Life and made its CD debut on Gaudet’s solo disc It’s a Colorful Life back in 1994.
And coincidentally – or not – Jim Gaudet & the Railroad Boys will grace the hallowed stage of Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs at 8pm on Friday. The concert will also mark the official debut of the Railroad Boys’ newest member, banjoman Scott Hopkins (of Fairview Avenue, Beartracks and the Wheelbarrow Boys). Tickets are $16 in advance; $18 at the door.
