OXFORD, OH (FOX19) - Calamity Rain is bringing their vibrant sound to the Oxford Community Art Center's Second Friday on November 11, 2011; OCAC’s Second Fridays Art Evening is a celebration of the arts. From 6 to 10 pm, this free monthly event features live music, exhibits of visual art, and a reception for the artists involved.
Calamity Rain is a trio unlike any other. They describe their performances as, "digging up old time songs, shining them up just a bit, setting them out best as we know how," which also fits with how this group came about. Deb Whitacre (guitar) and Amy Clay (banjo) met in West Virginia, where they spent a weekend singing in the back hills with their guru, Ginny Hawker.
