Outdoor event in Taylor take advantage of warm weather from 1 to 7 p.m.—with shuttle service

The Oxford Music Festival, previously slated to begin at 4 p.m. at Plein Air in Taylor, will now start at 1 p.m., allowing music lovers to enjoy what promises to be a warm, sunny afternoon of tunes. The music will continue until around 7 p.m. What’s more, round-trip shuttle service is available from the Ford Center to Plein Air for $10.

The event was previously announced to be slated for the Grove on the same date, but logistics required a change of venue.

Artists scheduled include headliner Shannon McNally, fresh from recording an album, with Dr. John, in tribute to the late Bobby Charles. The lineup includes Tyler Keith & the Apostles, Deux Filles de Sangin, Damien Wash, the Legit Jazz Sextet, the Red Thangs, Adrian Dickey, the Eric Deaton Trio, and DJ Gordo, as well as a performance by Hinge Dance Company. Moon Pie Curtis will serve as master of ceremonies and perform songs between the sets.
