Oakes & Smith and Kala Farnham
October 13 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The Jacob Edwards Library is pleased to host singer/songwriters Oakes & Smith and Kala Farnham for an evening of story and song. The performance will feature the artists’ original compositions, as well as songs by other artists.
Husband-and-wife folk duo Oakes & Smith create an ethereal sound not often heard in today’s popular music. The couple evokes a soulful sense of wonder, expressing themes of love, creativity, mystery, and an appreciation of natural beauty.
Armed with a voice and an entourage of instruments, songstress Kala Farnham set out into the world with one vision: To inspire through the transformative power of musical storytelling. Drawing from a classical education and professional career in musical theater, Kala presents a hallmark reinvention of the folk tradition: her lush musical arrangements, compelling vulnerability, and vivid storytelling draw her audience into imaginative re-creations of the familiar world.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Southbridge Local Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
