Skyflight Productions presents an evening with GoldenOak on Oct. 24 at The Albert S. George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville. GoldenOak’s music is rooted in the natural landscape- their songs move like a stream, meandering and weaving in an original yet grounding direction. Fronted by siblings Zak and Lena Kendall GoldenOak’s music calmly excites its listeners while nestled in rich folk-influenced sibling harmony. The Maine-based band has built a steady and growing fan base with this kind of energetic intimacy. This is perfectly represented in the group's latest album “Room to Grow”- A 10-song reflection of the emotional and physical impacts of the climate crisis. The band is rounded out by up-right bassist Mike Knowles and Drummer Jackson Cromwell.
The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12 each. More information is available at brownpapertickets.com.
