Emery Community Arts Center brings the musical sounds of Dyado to UMF on June 20

FARMINGTON - Dyado, the project of east coast songwriters Louisa Stancioff and Matt Lohan, will perform at the Emery Community Art Center on the University of Maine at Farmington campus, on Thursday, June 20, at 7 p.m. Free and open to the public.

Based in Asheville, North Carolina, Dyado (pronounced d-auto) is the partnership of two cousins who reconnected later in life and bonded over singing old country songs and playing fiddle. Together, they have crafted a hazy, film-grain sound that phases between dreamy California beach days, and fields drenched in fog.

Through the use of melodic electric guitar and fiddle, strong back beat drums and tight vocal harmonies, Dyado takes a new perspective on old country music and New England folk. They sing songs about adventure, lost love, and walking the line between youth and adulthood in a life on the road.

The Emery Community Arts Center is located on Academy St. between Main and High streets in downtown Farmington. The gallery summer hours are Wednesday to Saturday, noon to 5 p.m.
