Celebrate Our 13th Anniversary with a $13 donation to 6OTS!
We’re Celebrating our “Lucky 13th Anniversary” in June! We “went dark” in mid-March. We cancelled most of our spring performances (9 shows!), the Annual Oxford Students School Art Show in May, and our 3 Free Concerts in Lafayette Park outside our venue in July. But we remain active behind the scenes with continuing our mission of bringing music performers and audiences together to experience live music and art in a unique rural community setting.
Our on-line, live streamed summer performances offer us the opportunity to present a new performer to you (Jenner Fox in June) and watch 2 often requested return-performances (The Black Feathers in July and David Jacobs-Strain in August). Even with these performances supporting the performer and 6OTS, we have a need for more funding to sustain our venue until we are able to open our doors again.
Here’s what we’re asking for you, our supportive community members, to do to help us to truly make it a Lucky 13th”. Donate $13 to celebrate our 13th Anniversary. That’s it, simple and easy. Of course, if you find yourself in circumstances where you are able to donate more than $13, we would welcome that!
Thank you for your continuing support and we’ll see you “live” this fall!

A fierce slide guitar player, and a song poet from Oregon, David Jacobs-Strain is known for both his virtuosity and spirit of emotional abandon; his live shows move from humorous, subversive blues to delicate balladry, and then swing back to swampy rock and roll. It’s a range that ties Jacobs-Strain to his own generation and to guitar-slinger troubadours like Robert Johnson and Jackson Browne. Jacobs-Strain continues to take the blues in fresh new directions but, then again, with the equally imaginative eclectic vision that merges blues, folk, rock, and indie pop into an engaging Americana brew with pockets of funk and reggae around the edges.
This show will be broadcast on Facebook live; a link will be made available the week before the show, with a method for making donations. The donations will be split between David and 6OTS; a suggested donation is $18.

Live broadcast via Zoom
A 20-year veteran of the international folk circuit, Joe Jencks is an award-winning songwriter and celebrated vocalist based in the Chicago area. Merging conservatory training with his Irish roots and working-class upbringing, Jencks delivers engaged musical narratives filled with heart, soul, groove and grit. Having penned several #1 Folksongs including the ever-relevant Lady of The Harbor, Jencks is also co-founder of the harmony trio, Brother Sun. From Festivals like Falcon Ridge, Kerrville, Mariposa, and Old Songs, to venues like Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, Jencks has enthralled diverse audiences with his approachable style, and is noted for his unique merging of musical beauty, social consciousness, and spiritual exploration. Blending well-crafted instrumentals and vivid songwriting, Jencks serves it all up with a lyric baritone voice that has the edgy richness of a good sea-salt caramel. Tickets are $18 (plus $2 service charge) for this live performance; a link to the Zoom broadcast of the live show will be sent out the day before the show.
All of our late Summer into Fall programming is sponsored by The Greater Norwich Foundation in memory of Mr. and Mrs. John B. Turner, Sr.
