OXFORD, Miss. – The University of Mississippi and its Meek School of Journalism and New Media will play a key role in the production this season of “Oxford Sounds” on Mississippi Public Broadcasting, airing at 9 p.m. Thursday (Nov. 7).
An hourlong series documenting and discovering the music and musicians that are a part of the Oxford community, “Oxford Sounds” was filmed in part with the involvement of students from the school. The show features well-known talent such as the North Mississippi Allstars, Charlie Mars, Jimbo Mathus, Cedric Burnside, Bass Drum of Death, Shannon McNally and others whom call the town home.
“‘Oxford Sounds’ was fortunate to be able to capture many of the amazing sights and sounds of the Oxford music world,” said Marie Antoon, a producer for the series. “With nine hours of music and interviews, the series brings the audience inside the recording studios around Oxford. Mississippi is known for its place in the history of the music world, and Oxford demonstrates that its legacy will continue far into the future.”
