As is my nature, I only write about what I know to be true, on a wide variety of subjects, and what I do know to be true is that The Barefoot Movement is one of the six best performing artists
to have graced the old planks of the Turnage Theater stage since it was renovated and reopened. Their unique lyrical blend is original in composition and spirited in its delivery, and when their melodies find their way into my car stereo, by way of compact disc, I sense that warm stir of appreciation, and mentally recount those moments that I spent with the band when they visited our fair city in sunnier times.
