The Barefoot Movement has become a Big Top favorite, returning for their third time as the leaders of our annual Bluegrass Camp for Kids. They were award winners at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in 2013 and the 2014 International Bluegrass Music Awards. They draw on bluegrass, folk, acoustic rock and Americana, and with original songs, impressive instrumentation and interweaving harmonies, this band converges old and new into a style all its own.

In this episode’s monologue – delivered from the backstage dressing room with the one lonely little lightbulb burnin’ – Mike tells us why the teetotal goes to the tavern.  Then – in clodhopper terms – he defines the Big Dang Word “otiose.”
