Our final 2018 Summer Concert the evening of Saturday, September 8th will feature GoldenOak. 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.
