General Admission - $25 (plus applicable fees)

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.

Jamie Kent
Named the 2016 Durango / American Songwriter Sole Performer, artist Jamie Kent's future as a performer looks quite promising. Drawing on influences from modern country rock artists like Jason Isbell and Chris Stapleton, as well as paying tribute to classic greats like Bruce Springsteen 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 BOSE and Telefunken Microphones, and his song "Changes" was used by The Boston Red Sox this past season. Most recently, RollingStone.com named Kent one of the "30 Must See Acts" of CMA Fest 2016, alongside Eric Church, Carrie Underwood, and Chris Stapleton. Kent is now gearing up to release his brand new album "All American Mutt", recorded in Nashville with Grammy nominated Producer Dave Brainard (Brandy Clark, Jerrod Neimann, Jamey Johnson) coming out on his own label, Road Dog Records, in October 2016.
