OXFORD – Several years have passed since performer Rod Picott last took the stage at Oxford's 6 On the Square, but a recent swell in popularity in his brand of Americana has brought him back. A local favorite, Picott is slated to perform beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 22, for the 6 On The Square's Oxford Lions Club FUNdraiser event.

Nearly two decades ago, Picott laid down his work belt in his home state of Maine, picked up an acoustic guitar, and put a permanent end to his gig as a sheet rock hanger. He'd been writing music in private for years, but it was 2001's Tiger Tom Dixon's Blues — a debut album that bridged the gap between folk and Americana — that officially introduced him as a singer/songwriter, kick starting one of the more acclaimed careers in modern-day roots music.
