The Barefoot Movement, an Americana/folk quartet from Tennessee, will present a one-hour concert Saturday, March 16 at 2:00 p.m. in the Donahue Room of the Peter & Julie Cummings Library, 2551 S.W. Matheson Avenue, Palm City.  Sponsored by the Library Foundation of Martin County, the program is the third music event in the six-part Elisabeth Lahti Concert Series. Free tickets are required and are available for pickup only at the Cummings Library beginning March 12.  Reservations cannot be accepted by telephone.

Performing original and traditional old-time string music, the quartet consists of singer and fiddler Noah Wall, guitarist Quentin Acres, mandolinist Tommy Norris and bassist Hasee Ciaccio. Lyrics are written by Wall and are largely based on her personal experiences. The group’s debut album “Footwork” was released in June 2011.

The Barefoot Movement’s unique name evolved from Wall’s penchant to remove her shoes during shows, which conveys their down-home feel and relaxed atmosphere. They have extensively traveled the east coast, performing with or opening for artists like Ricky Skaggs, Peter Rowan, Jim Lauderdale and Dale Ann Bradley. With extensive praise for their original music and style, The Barefoot Movement will be a concert to remember.   

For more information on this or other Chautauqua South events, call (772) 221-1403, pick up a Library Connection at any branch library, or visit the library website at http://www.library.martin.fl.us.
