ROCKLAND — Oshima Brothers perform on the lawn of the Rockland Public Library for a free concert on Thursday, Aug. 22 at 6:30 p.m. People of all ages are invited to celebrate summer, dance and enjoy the music, and to come early for a picnic. They are asked to bring a chair or a blanket, if they would like, as seating is not provided.

Oshima Brothers' magnetic sibling sound and contagious joy result from a lifetime of making music together. Raised in a musical family in rural Maine, the brothers have honed a harmony-rich blend of contemporary folk and acoustic pop. On stage, Sean and Jamie create a full and complex sound with dynamic vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, octave bass, loops, and percussion

Oshima Brothers write, record and produce all their music and videos in their home studio. They currently have two albums to their credit, a self-titled debut in 2016, followed by the EP “Under The Same Stars” in 2019. Within a month of its release, the EP had garnered hundreds of thousands of streams online. Accompanying each of the five songs off “Under The Same Stars” is a music video, including one for the single “Ellie” which was featured as the lead track on NPR’s monthly “Heavy Rotation” playlist in March.

The brothers live together in Belfast but spend most of their time on the road performing, writing, filming and dancing.

The library is located at 80 Union St. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held in the Library’s Community Room. For more information, call 594-0310.
