FRANKLIN, OH -- The Franklin Area Historical Society will host local band Brotherbeen for a concert on the Harding Museum lawn on Sunday, June 23, at 2 p.m. Attendees should bring a lawn chair or blanket. 

Brotherbeen is an improvisational rock band from Southwest Ohio. The original incarnation of the band was formed in 2005-06 by longtime friends Neil Cuvar, Trevor Matthews, Aaron Reece, and Jason Nerenberg. Over the next two years the Brothers developed a broad repertoire of original music, driven by Neil’s prolific songwriting. With Trevor’s classically trained ear sculpting deep textures on keyboards and guitar, Aaron’s workmanship on the bass, and Jason ever-present in the pocket, the band quickly gained a small following... but decided to call it quits far too soon.

Nearly two decades later, Brotherbeen is back with a renewed sense of purpose, maturity and a once-lost love for creating music. Feeling there was something missing, the Brothers decided to reach out to their old friend and sometime collaborator Nathan Philpot to further define and develop the songbook that had lain dormant for 20 years.

With this new lineup, Brotherbeen has been woodshedding their expansive catalog and taking time to record and refine their work with hopes of releasing some music in near future.

The Harding Museum is at 302 Park Ave., Franklin. There is no charge for the event but donations will be accepted. Those with questions should call the Museum at 937.746.8295.
