OXFORD – Six On The Square (6OTS) is proud to present Melanie, folk-pop singer-songwriter and the legendary, “First Lady of Woodstock,” to their stage on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Melanie, with over thirty albums, has been performing for more than 40 years; and she’s still enlightening new generations with her music.
Known by the single name “Melanie,” she’s associated with the number one (roller skate) song, “Brand New Key.” What many don’t know is that she released almost one album every year since 1969 and almost all were produced by her late husband-manager, Peter Schekeryk. She’s raised three children - Leilah, Jeordie and Beau-Jarred who are also musicians. She’s won an Emmy, opened a restaurant, and written two musicals. Melanie wrote Ace of Diamonds - about Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane, and most recently Melanie And The Record Man – A Musical Memoir, about her life with Peter in which she stars. Melanie is not slowing down; she’s still writing and singing with passion and eloquence today!
