The Beaufort County Traditional Music Association presents The Barefoot Movement on Feb. 16 at the Turnage Theatre. Hear what people are saying about The Barefoot Movement. “The Barefoot Movement is a group that embodies all the things that I love about what is referred to as ‘traditional’ music…They are both great players, singers AND arrangers of ORIGINAL songs..they know the importance of having and building an identity of their own. And it’s these original songs and the way that they have arranged and delivered these tunes that really captures your attention and keeps you wanting more.” The Beaufort County Traditional Music Association is celebrating its 10th year in 2018. Look for more amazing performances from this grassroots arts organization this year.
