ABOUT THE BANDS:
THE WAY DOWN WANDERERS
The Way Down Wanderers is a 5-piece modern-folk Americana freight train of strings, spoons, and soul. No matter the individual circumstances of your day, week, or month, these youthful, foot-stomping, dread-rocking, classically trained humans will lend you their joyful energy long enough for you to make it your own. Kevin Alan Lamb, Sound & Silence
The Way Down Wanderers…think the Steep Canyon Rangers on speed…turned in a staggeringly energetic set of electrifying bluegrass numbers that had a packed room moving and clapping. Henry Carrigan, No Depression
Luxuriant bluegrass picking and steady percussion are met by tinges of fiddle and cello-based classical influence, making for an exquisite overall package that’s quickly readying the Wanderers to take not just Illinois or the States, but the world by storm. PopWrapped.com
The band creates layers of lush instrumentation that serve as a perfect soundscape for their gorgeous vocal harmonies. Their live show is full of energy and just a damn good time. They’re one of those bands that you can tell has a lot of fun doing what they do. Midwest Action
THE BAREFOOT MOVEMENT
One of the most promising bands on the bluegrass scene. CMT Edge
With groups like The Barefoot Movement on the scene, the future of bluegrass is in safe hands. The Daily Country
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 Adam Steffey
(Andy May’s) distinct style of writing and performing with a mixture of warmth, sensitivity and good nature bridges the gap between traditional and contemporary American music with purity and exuberance. David Sokol, WRSI
You can feel the salt of life in his songs. Really, few active songwriters can grab a listener with small-town stories and sharply cut images like Andy May. Jamsphere.com
