The 25th season of the Envision Financial Twilight Concert Series continues Friday, Aug. 7 with a performance by the Ken McCoy Band.

The concert is from 7 to 8 p.m. at Fraser River Heritage Park.

Award-winning songwriter and performer McCoy leads his acclaimed band in their twilight concert debut this summer.  They have been delivering their hard-driving, good old time country and classic rock music in venues large and small for years. They bring huge amounts of energy and personality to the stage and are all about the music and connecting with the audience.

On Wednesday, Aug. 12, a perennial favourite at Envision Financial Twilight Concerts, 1066 will perform. Their slightly irreverent, light-hearted style offers music covering a broad range of the musical spectrum.

Over the years they have shared the stage with such diverse luminaries as “Irish Rover” Will Millar, jazz piano phenom Michael Kaeshammer, and big band leaders Dal Richards and Mart Kenney. Group members do not take themselves too seriously except when it comes to working hard to make sure that their audiences have a blast.

On Aug. 12, concert-goers will have the opportunity to take part in Envision Financial’s Full Cupboard program and support St. Joseph’s Food Bank. They can bring non-perishable food or cash donations to the concert. To learn more about The Full Cupboard and Full Cupboard nights, visit thefullcupboard.ca

The concerts will continue every Wednesday and Friday evenings from 7 to 8 p.m. until  Aug. 28. Those attending should bring a lawn chair or blanket and settle in for a range of live music at Fraser River Heritage Park.

Concert-goers are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner or treat themselves to a special pre-concert meal at the Blackberry Kitchen or The Log Cabin Café. Admission to the concerts is free, though donations to this community-based series are appreciated.
