NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Tickets are still available for the upcoming concert of The Barefoot Movement when the exciting, young bluegrass band performs at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 8, in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the campus of Stephen F. Austin State University.

The performance is the last in this year's University Series presented by the SFA College of Fine Arts.

Heralded by CMT Edge as "one of the most promising bands on the bluegrass scene," The Barefoot Movement was named "Band of the Year" in 2014 by the International Bluegrass Music Association. Billboard Magazine describes their sound as "slices of bluegrass, country, folk and even a little bit of rock and roll."

"When this up-and-coming, youthful quartet of superb musicians romps through pop-infused 'newgrass' medleys and country-flavored ballads, you can expect an evening of music with something for everyone," said Scott Shattuck, associate dean of the College of Fine Arts and director of the series. "Tickets are selling fast, but there are still good seats available if you act quickly. Take advantage of our buy-one, get-one ad in The Daily Sentinel and bring a friend for free."

The band's University Series performance is sponsored in part by Commercial Bank of Texas.

Prior to the performance, artist, musician and SFA Professor Emeritus Charles D. Jones will present an informative talk at 7 p.m. in Griffith Gallery. The gallery is located across the hall from Turner Auditorium, which is inside the Griffith Fine Arts Building, 2222 Alumni Drive.

Tickets for the University Series are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and $10 for non-SFA students/youth. Tickets for SFA students are $3.
