OXFORD – Folk music pioneer Tret Fure will perform at 6 On The Square in Oxford at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 27.

Fure began her career at the age of 16, singing in coffeehouses and campuses in the Midwest. At 19, she moved to Los Angeles hoping to obtain a record deal.

Within a year, she performed as guitarist and vocalist for Spencer Davis, touring with him and penning the single for his album “Mousetrap.” She went on to record her own self-titled album in 1973, on MCA/UNI Records, with the late Lowell George of Little Feat as her producer. With the success of that release, she opened for such bands as Yes, Poco and the J Geils Band.

A prolific artist in the contemporary singer-songwriter arena, Fure has released 18 albums over the course of her 51-year career. Her new record, “Lavender Moonshine,” was released in late 2023. In addition to being a gifted songwriter, Fure has engineered and produced countless recordings by a variety of artists, including her own work.

In the early 1980s, Fure moved to the independent side of the music industry, discovering the blossoming genre known as women’s music. She recorded with and produced some of the best women’s music, including mixing the legendary “Meg & Cris at Carnegie Hall” (1983).

She worked as a duo with Cris Williamson throughout the 1990s, producing, engineering and releasing three albums together. Now after nine acoustic releases on her own label, Tomboy Girl Records, she has re-established herself in the folk world.
