Culture of Oxford MS

Oxford has had a thriving and diverse music scene for many years, often drawing comparisons to other Southern college towns with active musical life, such as Charlottesville, Virginia; Chapel Hill, North Carolina; Gainesville, Florida; Austin, Texas; or Athens, Georgia. Oxford's relatively close proximity to large music cities such as Memphis, New Orleans, and Nashville, make it a regular stop for most of the current musicians and bands who tour on a regular basis. Musicians past and present living in Oxford include Beanland, The Cooters, Bass Drum of Death, Kudzu Kings, Blue Mountain, George
