Brothers Osborne to play benefit concert on Virginia Shore

by DrewLUD


Country duo Brothers Osborne will rock the Shore in November for a good cause.

The seven-time Grammy nominated artists who have also won multiple CMA awards will perform at the Island House Restaurant’s 10th annual Oyster Roast Nov. 6 at Woodland Farms in Northampton County.

The event benefits the Navy SEAL Foundation, a nonprofit that supports warriors, veterans and families of the naval special warfare community.

Island House owner and event promoter Blake Johnson made the announcement on Shore radio WESR. The announcement is posted on the restaurant’s Facebook page.

The Brothers Osborne performs during the 56th ACM awards in Nashville on Sunday, April 18, 2021.

Ticket sales start Friday at 11 a.m. at the Island House Restaurant in Wachapreague initially to give locals first chance to get them, said Johnson.

Tickets cost $125 and are nonrefundable as all proceeds will go to the foundation after a family stepped up to pay for the band’s concert on the Shore.

He said 2,000 tickets will be available (1,650 for the general public) and organizers hope to raise about $250,000 for the foundation.

Johnson said the oyster roast raised about $12,000 in its first year for the foundation and has been hitting north of $100,000 in recent years.

There will also be a live auction.
