About Luke G and the Candyhearts
Grassroots Festival favorite & Ithaca Journal's Best Male Singer for 2015, Luke G transports us to the 1950s era of doo-wop, rock 'n' roll, & sock hop ballads with steely strumming & silvery vocals. A swell mix of original numbers & not-oft heard singles from the day.
The Candyhearts are Jason Shegogue on lead guitar, Oona Grady on upright bass with James Gascoyne joining on drums.
About Drank The Gold
From Upstate New York, Oona Grady (fiddle/viola/vocals) and James Gascoyne (guitar/banjo/vocals) play and sing North Atlantic dance tunes and folk songs.
Steeped in Irish music for as far back as she can remember, Oona spent many years living in Cork, Ireland, where she honed her skills as a fiddle player and Irish music specialist. Upon moving back to her hometown of Ithaca, NY, Oona immersed herself in the local traditional music scene and incorporated old time and Cajun tunes into her repertoire.
Growing up outside Louisville, KY, James was surrounded by music from an early age; radio, vinyl records, church music, and live concerts were a part of daily life. Finding his own musical style as an adult, James always keeps his ears open for sounds – new, old, familiar, or strange. While singing and playing guitar and banjo with Drank The Gold, he delves into the traditions of American old time and Irish dance tunes, while keeping true to his borderless, experimental musical roots.
Now based in Saratoga Springs, NY, Oona and James collaborate as Drank The Gold, bringing new perspectives and innovative arrangements to the music they love. Craic agus ceol (good times and music)!
