Belfast — The Oshima Brothers are returning to the Crosby Center, 96 Church St., for a concert Sunday, Feb. 25, at 3 p.m., as part of Belfast's first Winter Whoopla celebration.

When they last played to a sellout crowd with their band in the fall, it became clear they needed a larger venue, so this time the duo — Sean and Jamie Oshima — will be on the big stage.

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 surprisingly full sound with dynamic vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, octave bass, loops and percussion. Their debut album, "Oshima Brothers," released in 2016, is a collection of 11 original songs written by Sean; and arranged and recorded by Jamie. The brothers live in Maine, but often are on the road performing, producing music videos and dancing.

Tickets are $5, free for children younger than 9, and are available for advance purchase at crosbycenter.ticketbud.com. For more information, contact the Crosby Center at 370-6622 and check out the Facebook event. For a complete Belfast Winter Whoopla schedule, visit belfastmaine.org.
