Medallion Opera House Presents: GoldenOak
July 6, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
GoldenOak, an emerging sound in New England folk music, will be
performing at the Medallion Opera House at the Gorham Town Hall on Friday, July 6.
A Portland, Maine based, Indie-Soul-Folk, sibling duo, Zak and Lena Kendall were born and raised in the Sandy River Valley of Western Maine. The two started making music together as kids and the bond of brother and sister is evident in their carefully crafted songs, poetic lyrics, and flowing harmonies. Influenced early by legends like Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, Simon and Garfunkel, and The Band, and by the like of Fleet Foxes, First Aid Kit, and Ray LaMontagne.
GoldenOak began writing music and performing in 2014. Their early songs led to their first official release, Pleasant St., in 2016, an album they co-wrote with cellist Seth Wegner. The full length album painted the landscape of the duo’s childhood and their experiences growing up and leaving home. Appropriately, they recorded with accompaniments on electric guitar, cello, and trumpet, from hometown friends. The original album with beautiful instrumentation and voice solidified the band as ambassadors of the Maine Folk Scene.
The success of Pleasant St. and the following tour gained GoldenOak a nomination as “one of Portland’s most important upcoming bands” by Dispatch Magazine.
Over the last two years they shared the stage with many notable artists such as Lady Lamb, The Dustbowl Revival, The Ghost of Paul evere, The Mallett Brothers Band, and Parsonsfield. Find out more at www.GoldenOaksband.com.
