Barefoot Movement to perform for the Sails Original Music Series

HICKORY, NC (May 23, 2017)…Friday, May 26, the City of Hickory’s 2017 Sails Original Music Series will feature Barefoot Movement, a band described by CMT Edge as “one of the most promising bands on the bluegrass scene.” Based out of Nashville, the band has been honing their bluegrass tunes and musical chemistry for more than seven years.

“The Barefoot Movement played our Sails Stage a few years ago and everyone just raved about them,” explained Sails Music Coordinator, Bob Sinclair. “So it finally worked out to bring them back for more. These guys are so much fun. They combine acoustic music prowess with great songwriting in their own sweet way – barefooted!”
