The Hupman Brothers Band is a contemporary blues folk band whose founding brothers, Ryan and Scott Hupman grew up and started playing and performing music right here in Shelburne. Now based out of Wolfville, the Hupmans are an Osprey favourite and come back home to perform popular shows at the Osprey regularly. We couldn’t present our 15th anniversary season without including the Hupman Brothers – always pleased to have them back!
The band features, Scott and Ryan Hupman, both on guitar and vocals, Chris Robison on bass, and Adam Bazinet on drums. Over the past eight years, the Hupman Brothers have released seven studio albums and received multiple award nominations through Music Nova Scotia, The East Coast Music Association (ECMA), and Maple Blues. July 2016 saw the release of their newest album, Still Love It (featuring Asa Brosius on pedal steel). The Hupman Brother’s music is grounded in the golden age of Blues, yet it does not necessarily follow the standard Blues formula. Their songs and arrangements are fresh, incorporating swing/ragtime blues guitar of the 30s and 40s as well as folk, country, and roots influences.
