---- — Snowday — Kevin McKrell, Sara Milonovich, Kate McKrell and Brian Melick — will perform a holiday concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at 6 On The Square, 6 LaFayette Park in downtown Oxford.
The group draws influences from folk, alt-country, Celtic and world music in its holiday music, creating fresh renditions, a media release said.
Celtic folk singer-songwriter Kevin McKrell has been a founding member of the group Donnybrook Fair and The McKrells. He and his bands have appeared on the stages of Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. His songs have been recorded and performed by groups around the world, including The Furey Brothers, Seamus Kennedy and The Kingston Trio.
Milonovich is an award-winning fiddle player. She has performed at Six On The Square with her band Daisycutter, as well as at venues nationwide and around the globe. She is “at home in Americana roots, folk-rock, bluegrass, Celtic and Appalachian music scenes,” the release said.
Melick plays drums and world-beat percussion. He has been featured on more than 350 commercially recorded works for clients such as TDK, GE and Scholastic. The musician is also an inventor — holding three patents — and an educator.
Kate McKrell, Kevin McKrell’s daughter, joins Kevin and Milonovich in three-part harmonies on songs such as “A Visit from Saint Nick” and “The 12 Days of Christmas.”
Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door. For more details, call 843-6876 or visit www.6onthesquare.org.
