Catch the Barefoot buzz

The garden cafe space at the back of Barefoot has proved one of Colombo's best places to relax, have a meal, meet friends and while the time away whilst listening to an eclectic collection of recorded music playing in the background. This season there's a whole lot also happening at Barefoot.

On Monday, December 14 at 8:00 p.m., Barefoot presents two great musicians in concert: Glen Terry and Jerome Speldewinde. Glen Terry, a fine blues guitarist, (winner of the CBS Blues Awards for Best Male Vocalist and Best Song and a Finalist for four Nominations for the Australian Blues Chain Awards 2009; Best Song, Best Album, Best New Talent and Best Band) and the unsurpassed crooner Jerome, will play a selection of originals, and jazz and blue standards.
