The Barefoot Movement

The Barefoot Movement won the 2014 International Bluegrass Music Band of the Year Momentum Award and was runner up at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival 2013 band competition. Their music, acoustic and performed around one microphone, draws from different genres: bluegrass, folk, acoustic rock and Americana.

According to The Daily Country: “Bluegrass and folk connoisseurs, and novices as well, are sure to find a fresh take on the elements that drew them to the music in the first place. There’s no auto-tune, and no production trickery….just the joy of a good story well told. With groups like The Barefoot Movement on the scene, the future of bluegrass is in safe hands.”

At Telluride’s Palm Complex, The Barefoot Movement will perform a homespun, special holiday celebration concert complete with all of the classic seasonal favorites all gift-wrapped in a colorful musical package. The celebration includes acoustic renditions of everything from Chuck Berry’s “Run Run Rudolph” to Perry Como’s “It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas.” Also emotional takes on songs of the season like “Oh Holy Night” and “Hark The Herald Angels Sing.”

With stories and holiday memories from the band, the music and cheer should fill the audience with enduring feelings of love and hope guaranteed to warm hearts on a cold winter nights.

“We’re excited to have a great kickoff to the holiday season at the intimate Bob Saunders Theatre and welcome such a talented group of musicians back to Telluride,” says Programming Director Chris Vann.
