The Barefoot Movement will play at the next Music in the Streets, May 18, 2012 | Eastern North Carolina Now

   The Barefoot Movement, a four member combo from North Carolina, Tennessee and South Carolina, who are well versed in their blessed blend of folk, traditional country and bluegrass, are slated to perform on the main stage at the May 18, 2012 Music in the Streets in Washington, North Carolina. The Barefoot Movement: Noah Wall, fiddle, vocals - Quentin Acres, mandolin, acoustic guitar, vocals - Tommy Norris, mandolin, acoustic guitar - Hasec Ciaccio, stand-up Bass are young and very talented in their chosen medium of expression, and if you only go to one "Music in the Streets" this season, you must spend as much time as you can afford with this fine ensemble.

   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.

   Do yourself a favor, come to this next Music in the Streets, May 18, 2012, beginning at 6:00 PM - if only to see this fine young musical ensemble make some of the most pleasing sounds in recent memory for this unique genre of music. And after you witness this excellent, spirited bunch of talented young folks, please thank the Beaufort County Traditional Music Association for sponsoring this outstanding show of the The Barefoot Movement. Their efforts are truly a blessing.

It began as a light rain Thursday night, January 20th, with temperatures a balmy 46 degrees, and by morning a thin layer of ice clung to the firm, bright reddish green Nandina leaves prevalent upon my personal grounds here in Mac'swood.
