A Roots musician will mark his return to the Oxford hall | Entertainment News

Roots singer-songwriter Kerri Powers will return to 6 On The Square in Oxford at 7.30pm on Saturday March 26.

According to a press release, Powers, a Boston native, had an artistic youth that included music, painting and writing, and she composed her first songs when she was 9 years old. His creative instincts may come naturally as Bing Crosby was a distant relative on his father’s side, while his mother’s parents claimed kinship with Herman Melville. His grandmother had a regular piano concert to the accompaniment of silent films.

As a teenager, Powers began performing at local New England coffeehouses, but when she married and had a child, she put her musical pursuits on hold. After raising her son and overcoming the end of her marriage, she rediscovered her passion and started making music again.

As noted later in the release, a self-titled EP marking his return to music in 2014 landed the No. 1 spot on Roots Music Report’s Top 50 Folk Albums of 2014 list. Critics have compared her style to artists Shelby Lynne, Lucinda Williams, Rosanne Cash, Tammy Wynette and Bonnie Raitt. His latest album is called “Starseeds”.

Powers reportedly shared the concert stage with Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Jimmy LaFave, Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks, Dave Mallet and Luka Bloom.

She toured across the United States as well as overseas, making appearances in the Netherlands, Belgium, and the United Kingdom. She has performed at the Boston Folk Festival, the Philadelphia Folk Festival and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.

His song “Diamond Day” was featured in the movie “Chuck,” and other tracks were heard on the TV series “Rescue Me” and “Justified.”
