Barefoot Movement is a quintet of young bluegrassers from Granville County. The band was created from a duet that formed after fiddler Noah Kelce met guitarist Andrew Marlin in a college classroom. Kelce, who also plays guitar and sings, has since become so taken with bluegrass that she is now transferring to East Tennessee State University, whose bluegrass studies program she will enter this fall.
Others performing with Barefoot Movement at its RAF show are Tommy Norris on mandolin and guitar; Frank McCurry on bass; and Molly Miller, a lead singer who also composes some of the band’s original material.
