Nathan Bell, Modern Day Troubadour at 6OTS

OXFORD – Saturday, Sept. 20, at 7:30 p.m., 6 On The Square (6OTS) is proud to present Tennessee singer-songwriter, Nathan Bell. Bell is known for his straight forward yet poetic lyrics and expert musicianship, and like a modern day troubadour, his stories are of everyman, sung with honesty and empathy. Though his subjects are often dark and troubled, Bell never leaves the listener without “a crack,” just as Leonard Cohen described, “…how the light gets in.”

Son of famed poet-laureate of Iowa, Marvin Bell, Nathan’s early years were filled with the comings and goings of literary giants such as Kurt Vonnegut and Studs Terkel but, instead of picking up a pen, he picked up a guitar. “I learned to play by listening to blues greats Lightnin’ Hopkins, Sonny Terry, and Brownie McGee. I learned to write lyrics by reading Jack London, William Carlos Williams, and Frank Herbert.”
