OXFORD – Saturday, at 7:30 pm, 6 On The Square (6OTS) is celebrating their fifth anniversary featuring the ever incomparable Vance Gilbert. Back by popular demand, this gifted, contemporary “folk” performer has it all: tenor vocals fluid and enthralling, masterful guitar skills, whimsical sense of humor, and lyrical eloquence. Along with this fine entertainer, there will be great raffles as well as cake for the celebration!
Vance Gilbert burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the early 90’s when the buzz started spreading in the folk clubs of Boston about an ex-jazz singer who was knocking ‘em dead at open mikes. The word spread of this Philadelphia-area born and raised performer to New York where Shawn Colvin invited Vance to be a special guest on her Fat City tour. Gilbert took audiences across the country by storm and the rest is… history!
