Will Griffith & The Great Dying
Will Griffith has been making beautiful Americana Music in Oxford, Mississippi for some time now. The Local Voice featured Will on our 2016 TLV TV web series, which you can view here and here.
You may not recognize him now; he usually has a big, beautiful beard.
However as he says, “Every ten years or so I’ll shave to the bone to surprise my mom. Hope everyone is happy and having a safe weekend ❤️”
Rocket 88 is Jamie & Rosamond Posey, with Nate Robbins on bass. They have been an Oxford music staple for many years now. We love them!
I am so happy to see Rocket 88 live online during these trying times. Here they are playing the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council‘s “Stay@Home Festival” on Sunday, March 22.
This is a full concert, so press play and clean the house… again!
Let’s hear it for Rocknroll!!!
Tyler Keith lives in Oxford, Mississippi and is associated with The Neckbones, The Preacher’s Kids, The Apostles, Kid Twist, and more.
Tyler is a local, state, and national music legend in many, many circles.
Andrew Gordon is back with his beautiful harp. Light a candle and enjoy. This one is call “Planxty Irwin”.
