New Sharon natives, sibling duo, Zak and Lena Kendall as GoldenOak, take the stage on Friday, February 15th at the Old South Congregational Church located at 235 Main Street in Farmington. GoldenOak is an Indie Soul-Folk band and has shared the stage with notable artists: Lady Lamb, The Dustbowl Revival, The Ghost of Paul Revere and the Mallett Brothers. 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, Mike Knowles (Bass), and Jackson Cromwell (percussion), and have broken onto the music scene as full-time artists traveling in the US.
