We have three concerts planned:
Saturday, July 28th: Married with Chitlins kicks off our 2018 concert series! An acoustic music duo comprised of Chris and Liz Lannon, Married with Chitlins perform Traditional American music, Old Time Country and Blues, some Jazz standards and Celtic reels and jigs, with guitar and fiddle with a strong female lead vocal with harmonies but you’ll also hear sprinklings of mandolin and harmonica. You can find Married with Chitlins on Facebook and on reverbnation.
Online ticketing for Married with Chitlins will end July 27th.
Saturday, August 25th: Our second concert features Rough Sawn. This local string band is composed of farmers and carpenters – true salt of the earth people. They are renowned for their excellent covers of classic country, bluegrass, folk and Western swing as well as timeless originals. They’ve played local farmers markets, breweries, and other events. Their four part harmonies are not something you’re going to want to miss. You can find Rough Sawn on Facebook.
Online ticketing for Rough Sawn will end August 24th.
Saturday, September 8th: GoldenOak will wrap up our 2018 concert series. GoldenOak is an Indie Soul-Folk band fronted by sibling duo Zak and Lena Kendall. Originally from the Sandy River Valley of Western Maine and now based in Portland, they began to write music and perform in 2014. GoldenOak released their first album, Pleasant St., in 2016, an album they co-wrote with cellist Seth Wegner. The full length album painted a landscape of the duo’s childhood and their experiences growing up and leaving home. The original album with beautiful instrumentation and voice solidified the band as ambassadors of the Maine Folk Scene and earned them praise such as 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 Revere, and The Mallett Brothers Band. In October 2017, GoldenOak released Foxgloves, a 6 track EP that builds on Zak and Lena’s folk roots with a remarkable orchestral approach and earthy sound. The band kicked off their Foxgloves release tour with a sold out show at Portland’s One Longfellow Square, and in December, Foxgloves was voted “EP of the Year” by the Portland Music Awards. Zak and Lena record and often tour with fellow musicians and band mates, Seth Wegner (cello), Max Eddington (piano), and Jackson Cromwell (percussion). Find out more at GoldenOakband.com.
Online ticketing for GoldenOak ends September 7th.
We hope you can join us this summer for some music along the Sheepscot Valley narrow gauge!
