Heartfelt, energetic, and down home. Heralded by CMT Edge as "one of the most promising bands on the bluegrass scene," the music of the Nashville based group The Barefoot Movement is as down to earth as their intention for members of their audience: sit back, relax, take your shoes off, and stay a while. All the worries and frustrations of the world melt away as the charming four-piece acoustic band takes listeners back to a simpler place and time. Whether you're seeking emotional ballads or rip-roaring barn-burners, you can expect a collection of music that offers something for everyone. With two full length albums, several cross-country tours, and appearances at some of the top bluegrass festivals in the United States already under their belt, the possibilities are endless. The group has enjoyed almost non-stop touring including a trip to Burkina Faso, Africa where they were guests of the American Embassy. Debuting in September, 2014, their third release, "The High Road EP" showcases traditional material that has consistently been among the crowd favorites at their live performances.Save

"The Barefoot Movement is a group that embodies all the things that I love about what is referred to as "traditional" music. On their CD entitled "Footwork" - Noah Wall, Quentin Acres, and Tommy Norris take the listener beyond the standard ideas and arrangement designs. They are both great players, singers AND arrangers of ORIGINAL songs. With ten of the twelve songs being originals, they know the importance of having and building an identity of their own. And it's these original songs and the way that they have arranged and delivered these tunes that really captures your attention and keeps you wanting more."
