February’s featured performer is Leaving Tulsa, an acoustic duo with Jayme Lou Loges on vocals and guitar and Jim Vekasi on vocals and mandolin. They play a blend of Americana songs with intertwining voices and strings.
Jayme Lou started singing at age three. She grew up in Oklahoma singing gospel music with her family, The Durham Family. She has played in several bands over the years. She moved to Bar Harbor with her husband and dog in 2016 and is living in the log home they built themselves. She works as a nurse at MDI Hospital.
Jim has been performing with other MDI musicians since 1991 when he arrived from his previous national park assignment in Montana. Almost thirty years later, his original plan to keep moving on to other parks seems to have fallen through as he fell in love with MDI and is now an Acadia retiree and grandfather. He has helped found a number of local bands including Green Mountain Railway, Dog Mountain, Big Moose, Halfway There, Kelley Farm, and Beech Mountain Project.
