GoldenOak to perform at Route 27 Arts

STATTON — New England Celtic Arts will present GoldenOak at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 11, at Route 27 Arts, 88 Main St., on as part of it’s ongoing Patriot Renewables emerging artists series.

From the foothills of Western Maine, the members of GoldenOak had a friendship that continues to grow as they make music, on and off the stage. As siblings, Lena and Zak Kendall filled their summers with songs on the lake, and collaborating with the hum of Seth Wegner’s cello, the roots of GoldenOak were formed. They were soon joined by friends and talented musicians alike, Peter Coleman on electric guitar, and Julian Stearns on trumpet. The band’s sound ranges from toots/traditional to Indie/pop.

New England Celtic Arts with the help of Patriot Renewables has presented more than 100 concerts over the past three years involving young emerging artists and bands. This concert will launch the forth season for the series that will include artists from Maine, New England, Canada and the UK. Other bands in this years series are Calan from Wales, Dallahan from Scotland, Tomato/Tomato from New Brunswick, The Gothard Sisters from the West Coast and Socks in the Frying Pan from Ireland. In addition a new project will be featured with a well established performer, Shannon Heaton, from Boston in a new ensemble called After the Morning. Heaton is creating a new body of work that will feature her award-winning vocals and Irish flute with lush string quartet arrangements. The inaugural tour of the project will start this week in Maine as part of this ongoing series.

Tickets cost $15. For more information, call 264-2300 or visit www.necelticarts.com.
