The Old South Church Concert Series kicks off its 2018 season with the homegrown brother-sister duo of GoldenOak at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 22, at 235 Main St. in Farmington. Doors will open at 6:30 pm.

GoldenOak is an emerging sound in New England folk music. A Portland based, Indie-Soul-Folk, sibling duo, Zak and Lena Kendall were born and raised in the Sandy River Valley of Western Maine. They started making music together as children 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 Mason Jennings, Ray LaMontagne, and Fleet Foxes.

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.

Tickets cost $15 for adults, and $10/$5 for students. Refreshments will be available by donation at intermission.

To reserve tickets, call 491-5919. The facility is handicapped accessible.
