KINGFIELD — The Kingfield POPS will celebrate its 16th year June 30 by hosting the Bangor Symphony Orchestra with Grammy award-winning music conductor and director Lucas Richman.

Others performing include GoldenOak, Adam Ezra Group, Gypsy Tailwind Reunion and Shawn Tooley. A fireworks show will close out the evening.

The Kingfield POPS has commissioned the development of orchestral charts by Emmy-nominated composer/arranger Benjamin Birkbeck for a collaboration and a return to the stage of Gypsy Tailwind and Adam Ezra Group with the Bangor Symphony.

Richman has served as music director and conductor since 2010 and was music director for the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra from 2003 to 2015. His command of the core repertoire, coupled with his finesse in presenting new and contemporary works, continues to illustrate his source of musical expertise and artistic excellence.

GoldenOak is a Portland-based, indie-soul folk sibling duo, additionally featuring musicians on trumpet, cello and keys. Zak and Lena Kendall, originally from New Sharon, perform carefully crafted songs, poetic lyrics and flowing harmonies as they sow seeds that explore a rich folk tradition.

The Adam Ezra Group quartet is well known for its tight roots-steeped, road-trippin’ essence, tight musicianship, well-written lyrics and dynamic, engaging and powerful performances.

The gathering of Gypsy Tailwind Reunion will feature Anna Lombard. The group was led by two strong talents in songwriting: Daniel Connor on guitar and vocals and Lombard on vocals. She was the 2015 New England Music Awards Female Performer of the Year. Touching on an array of genres, their style remained rooted firmly within Americana and Roots traditions, with flavors of folk, rock, and alt-country.

Living in both Napa, Caifornia, and Portland, Maine, Shawn Tooley has been deeply involved with singing, songwriting and touring acts since the age of 13, covering blues, Americana, country, folk, reggae, and improvisational genres. He continually writes and records, selling songs to film, cable, radio and to musicians.

Tickets can be purchased online at kingfieldpops.com or at Kingfield and Farmington locations of Tranten’s Family Stores, and at local branches of Skowhegan Savings Banks.
