Next Main Stage Concert:

Barefoot Movement

The Barefoot Movement
Saturday, January 12, 7:30 p.m.

The Barefoot Movement is a contemporary bluegrass band based in Nashville. Hailing from North Carolina (fiddler Noah Wall and mandolinist Tommy Norris), Illinois (Katie Blomarz on bass), and Mississippi (singer/guitarist Alex Conerly), they deliver a powerful, heart-rending, butt-kickin’ inoculation against lifelessness in any of its forms. They are great players, singers, and arrangers of original songs, and they know the importance of having and building an identity of their own. One of the most promising young bands on the bluegrass scene, The Barefoot Movement are recipients of the 2014 IBMA Band of the Year Momentum Award. And yes, they do play barefoot.

Kelly Hunt is a singer-songwriter of Americana/Roots music, born and raised in Memphis TN but now based out of Kansas City, MO. Accompanied by her 1920s tenor banjo ("Ira") and guitar ("Vernon"), Kelly’s songs meld traditions of folk, classic country, and old-time music for a sound that is both timeless and fresh. Her songwriting is poetic but approachable, full of feeling and alive with storytelling. With her new debut album "Even the Sparrow" in hand, Kelly embarks on her first national tour this fall, accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Stas Heaney. Refreshments at 6:30 pm, concert at 7:30 pm.
