FARMINGTON — New England Celtic Arts will present GoldenOak at Old South Church in Farmington at 7 p.m.,  Saturday, April 18, as part of the ongoing Patriot Renewables Emerging Artists series.  A pre-show jam session is scheduled for one hour prior to curtain. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for students. 

From the foothills of Western Maine, the members of GoldenOak had a remarkable friendship that continues to grow as they make music, both on and off the stage. Growing up together they shared many laughs, adventures, and the common love of music. 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. With their love for music and their love for one another, GoldenOak promises a blissful sound and an exuberant time for listeners of all kinds. From roots/traditional to indie/pop, this band has something for everyone.

 This concert will launch the forth season for the series that will include artists from Maine, New England, Canada and the U.K. Other bands in this year’s series are Calan from Wales, Dallahan from Scotland, Tomato/Tomato from New Brunswick, and the Gothard Sisters from the West Coast. 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. Shannon 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 in Maine as part of this ongoing series. New England Celtic Arts with the help of Patriot Renewables has presented well over 100 concerts over the past three years involving young emerging artists and bands.

Old South Church is located at 235 Maine St., Farmington. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for students and UMF with ID. More information is available at: Reservations are strongly suggested. Call 207-491-5919
