And the Echo performs Sunday in the Grove in Oxford

The University of Mississippi Museum, in conjunction with Visit Oxford and other local organizations, is hosting live music in the Grove each Sunday in June for the Summer Sunset Series.

The museum presents the popular synth-pop duo And the Echo at 5 p.m. Sunday. The Oxford-based group draws influence from ‘80s bands such as Duran Duran and describes its style as similar to Depeche Mode with a smooth and emotive female vocalist.

Attendees are encouraged to arrive early to the free event and picnic in the Grove before the music.

The series also will feature Americana group Rocket 88 on June 18 and acoustic group Black Water Trio on June 25.

Other sponsors include the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council, Visit Oxford, the Ole Miss Student Union, Oxford-Lafayette County Chamber of Commerce, and the divisions of University and Public Events and University Communications.
