Justin Latam performed in Tune up the Parks

by Sylene Argent

Known as “The Barefoot Musician,” Leamington’s Justin Latam brought his up-beat brand of folk, rock, and blues infused music to Essex Centre last Wednesday evening as he performed in the Arts, Culture, and Tourism (ACT) Committee’s Tune Up the Parks weekly summer concert series.

  While in Essex Centre, Latam played a variety of covers, and some originals to promote his 5th album “Bearfoot” and his new EP, “Six.”

  The Essex Centre concert was just one of the several gigs in which Latam has performed this summer during his Ontario Tour. He also played in Essex Centre, with his trio, in July during the Essex Centre BIA’s Rockin’ Sidewalk Sales event.
