OXFORD – 6 On The Square (6OTS) is proud to announce a weekend with two great musical groups from near and far. On Friday, it’s the bluegrass quartet, Grassanova, a Southern Tier based group with a dynamic sound all their own. On Sunday, it’s the award-winning trio from Scotland, North Sea Gas, playing an exciting blend of Scottish and Irish folk music.
All you bluegrass fans, you asked for it, now you’ve got it! On Saturday, 7:30 p.m., don’t miss, Grassanova. This group will be playing old familiar bluegrass tunes but in a new way. Members are Tom Quigley, Marie Shaver, R. J. Siegers and Jim MacWilliams; individually they have had years of experience playing bluegrass and other forms of acoustic music. Together they form an exciting, new acoustic sound. Grassanova plays solid traditional bluegrass as well as popular songs done in their bluegrass/”newgrass” style. They’ll even throw in a few other musical styles such as swing, blues, and early jazz just for fun. Purchase tickets on-line at the discounted price of $10, until the day of the show; $12 on the day of the show. Doors open at 6:30.
