The Musicians: Oshima Brothers
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 are often on the road performing, producing music videos, and dancing.
The Speaker: Joe Danubio
Every April, various migratory species of fish embark on an expedition from the ocean into the local rivers, brooks, and streams. After traveling through the various ocean tributaries, the migratory species reach their final destination, the spawning grounds, where they complete their reproductive purpose for their existence and insure the survival of future generations. One of these species is the American shad.
Joe Danubio will be leading a discussion about the biological habits of the American shad and tactics on how to catch the American shad with a fly rod. Much of the focus with revolve around the existence of American shad in the Indian Head River in Hanover/Pembroke, MA. The Indian Head River boasts one of the more robust populations of American shad for Massachusetts coastal estuaries. Joe Danubio is a local fly fisherman, winner of the Second Annual Cheeky Schoolie Tournament for striped bass on the Cape with a fly rod, and the author of The Complex Mind of an Ordinary Fly Fisherman.
