DCSC June 29: Golden Oak

  • Down County Social Club 864 South Undermountain Road Sheffield, MA, 01257 United States

From the foothills of Western Maine comes GoldenOak, a folk group whose genre-blending sound has them steadily emerging as a musical force in New England. Conceived in the winter of 2013, their woodsy, modern folk sound weaves together rich four-part harmonies and piercing melodic lines over a unique blend of cello, guitar, trumpet, and cajón. Shifting effortlessly from energetic swing to dreamy ballad, they’re as comforting as a campfire and as heart-shaken as a summer squall. 

Named one of Maine's "rising artists" by the Nova Design Group, they celebrated a January release of their their debut album, "Pleasant St." which was recorded during a quiet spring in their house in Bar Harbor, ME. They have since been performing regularly throughout the Northeast, sharing the stage with bands such as the South African phenomenon Jeremy Loops, Canadian hip-hop artist Sonreal, The Way Down Wanderers, Parsonsfield, Lady Lamb, the Dupont Brothers, and many more. Members include Zak Kendall (guitar, lead vocals), Lena Kendall (percussion, lead vocals), Seth Wegner (cello, vocals), and Eloise Schultz (trumpet, vocals).
