Singer-songwriter Aidan Boardman will perform at the Oasis of Music beginning at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 4, at Trinity Church in Lewiston.

According to his Spotify profile, “There is a polarity in the music of Aidan Boardman. His lyrics, sometimes humorously cryptic and often focused inward, read like stream-of-consciousness musings from the busy mind of someone perpetually looking out the window of a Greyhound bus. The music, however, isn’t so insular. Within his arrangements, echoes of community run deep. Raised in Maine by a family of musicians and artists, there is a communal spirit that flows through Aidan’s music. Unassuming guitars lead way to lush layers of violin, brass, percussion, organ and harmony vocals provided by a selection of talented collaborators. There is a ‘living-room’ quality to the music that is unmistakable – as if you can hear the songs meandering in from the next room. But the windows are open: the world is creeping in.”

The Oasis of Music is a weekly music series of performances of roughly thirty minutes, running from September to May. Admission is free, with donations accepted. The musical genres vary greatly, in largely, but not exclusively, acoustic formats. COVID restrictions of optional mask-wearing and social distancing are observed. Trinity Church is located at 247 Bates St., Lewiston. For more information, call 207-344-3106.
