Barefoot Truth // Opener: Jamie KentSaturday, April 22 at 7:30 pm
Having reached #10 on the iTunes Rock Chart, roots-rock band Barefoot Truth returns from hiatus for a rare full-band reunion on their home-turf in Northampton, MA.
Barefoot Truth is a symbol of genuine independent music success. Their dedicated and ever-expanding grassroots following, including over 30 million Pandora plays (as of January 2017), has been built one listener at a time. Touring for several years before ultimately going “in hibernation”, as the band describes, Barefoot Truth shared bills with the likes of Crosby & Nash, Rusted Root, and members of Dispatch. In 2008 the band performed their song “All Good Reasons” at President Obama’s pre-debate event in New York.
Opener: Jamie Kent
Named by RollingStone.com as an “Artist You Need To Know”, and dubbed a “rising country star” by Fox & Friends, one might say the future of Jamie Kent looks quite promising. Drawing on influences from modern country rock artists like Jason Isbell and Will Hoge, as well as paying tribute to classic greats like Bob Dylan and Tom Petty, Kent’s perfectly mellifluous tunes are roll-the-windows-down, soak-up-some-sun kind of good. Kent has no fear of hard work, playing over 200 shows a year including tours with Huey Lewis & The News, The Doobie Bros, America, Brothers Osborne, Brandy Clark, Marc Broussard, and multiple showcases at the South By Southwest Music Festival. Kent is supported by The Collective, an amazing grassroots group of fans who help advise and fund his career in exchange for access to exclusive music, merchandise, and vote in the major decisions he makes. He’s officially endorsed by Durango Boots, Gibson Guitars, BOSE and Telefunken Microphones, and his brand new album “All American Mutt”, just debuted at #16 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart. Landing in between Luke Bryan and Dolly Parton, Kent was the only independent artist to break into the Top 20.
