Milwaukee, WI— River Rhythms, downtown’s destination for music on Wednesday evenings welcomes Brother to the stage this week Wednesday, August 19th. The free concert series takes place from 6:30-9 p.m. every Wednesday until August 26th in Pere Marquette Park on Old World Third St. between State and Kilbourn.

Known for their lively and energetic performances, Brother, the wholly original Celtic tribal band, headlines this week’s River Rhythms! Composed of Australian brothers, Angus, Dalbo and Drew, this tribal trio fuses together harmonious vocals with the powerhouse sounds of bagpipes, percussion and didgeridoos.  It is a special show tomorrow as Angus has announced he will be stepping away from Brother, and this will be his final appearance in the area with the group.

Brother is a nationally acclaimed group that has been featured on “ER” and has toured the world, performing their music in the United States, Canada, Japan, France, Egypt and Australia.  Sharing stages with the likes of artists such as Alicia Keys, Joe Walsh and Linkin Park, Brother is the only independent band to play at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and stand as a leader in the independent scene having self-released 12 albums and sold more CDs in the U.S. than any other Australian act. This crowd favorite will have River Rhythms audience members up and on their feet from beginning to end!

Miller products, wine and soda will be available at the Westown Beverage tent with all proceeds going to benefit the free event. Patrons can also enjoy food from Streetza Pizza, Eats and Treats, Cousins Subs and Laura’s Gourmet Popcorn.

Westown is excited to collaborate with Newaukee as they host their third Night Market of the season tomorrow night from 5 to 10 pm between 2nd and 4th street on West Wisconsin Avenue. Live musicians, walking tours and more connect these two great community events.

Be sure to stop by the beverage tent at River Rhythms for every one purchase you make you will receive a coupon good for one beverage at the Night market!

Creative Alliance Milwaukee will also be hosting some great programming at the 4th and Wisconsin parking lot, also known as The Spot 4 MKE. Food trucks, picnic tables, music, spoken word, story telling, mural painting, games and more at The Spot. Stop by The Spot before or after heading to NEWaukee‘s third summer Night Market taking place just down the Avenue and Westown’s River Rhythm’s at Pere Marquette Park.

Next week, for the final week of River Rhythms, Westown welcomes Hugh Bob and the Hustle to the stage! Find a recap of the 2015 River Rhythms lineup at Westown.org.
