Please note: Because of the rain and thunderstorms forecast for this afternoon and evening, the concert will take place in Uris Hall Auditorium.
Melissa Cox and her band, Mythica, open the summer concert series on the Arts Quad with their special blend of Celtic-flavored prog rock, newgrass, and Americana. A classically trained singer, Melissa possesses a voice that has been described by Sing Out! magazine as “a cross between Loreena McKennitt and Jefferson Airplane’s Grace Slick.” She’s also got impressive songwriting chops and was named best singer/songwriter by Spark Magazine, best Celtic fusion singer by Celtic MP3 Music Magazine, and best musical folk artist by the Delaware Division of Arts.
Melissa has shared the stage with the Spin Doctors, Sister Hazel, Smash Mouth, Three Dog Night, Cyril Neville, and Catie Curtis and has headlined at hundreds of major festivals and premier venues in the continental U.S., Hawaii, and New Zealand. Her two latest albums, Transient Resonance and Harmonious Maladies, showcase not only her musical and writing talents, but also her abilities as a producer and sound engineer.
