BAR HARBOR—Music fans are in luck, with two great bands at the Jesup Memorial Library. Indie folk band GoldenOak will play on Thursday, July 2 at 7 p.m. Then, to end the Acadia Trad School’s Acadia Halls Series, Cynthia MacLeod, Ward MacDonald and Chris Gray will perform on Friday, July 3 at 4 p.m.
The roots of GoldenOak were formed when Lena and Zak Kendall, who spent their summers, while growing up collaborating with cellist Seth Wegner. Soon they were joined by friends Rand Miles on electric guitar and Julian Stearns on trumpet. The band blends harmonies, guitar, cello, trumpet and percussion in their music, which ranges from old-time tunes to original pieces.
Then, Friday at 4 p.m. to end the Acadia Trad School’s 2015 music festival, the “Scottish Roots Grand Finale” will be at the Jesup. The trio features Cynthia MacLeod, Ward MacDonald and Chris Gray. They have roots in Scottish music with a touch of the Irish and Canadian Maritimes styles. Enjoy fiddles, bagpipes, whistles, and more. MacLeod and MacDonald are from Prince Edward Island and Gray lives on Mount Desert Island and is an instructor at the Acadia Trad School. There is a requested $5 donation for the Acadia Trad School concert to help cover costs.
