An evening of folk and blues music on the Twilight stage

Mission’s Fraser River Heritage park will host Brandon Isaak on July 13

Friday the 13th will be a lucky day for all those who love the blues and love the blues played well.

Brandon Isaak takes to the Envision Financial Twilight Stage and he will prove why he was nominated for a 2018 Juno Award.

Isaak is a folk and blues musician who brings a firebrand style of guitar as well as stirring vocals.

He always features world-class musicianship and songwriting but it is his endearing ability to connect with and involve the audience that makes any appearance a popular one.

Isaak has a number of albums under his belt including Garage Apartment and Bluesman’s Plea.

On Wednesday, July 18, the series celebrates the start of the 31st Mission Folk Festival with Vancouver Island’s Ross Desprez.

Desprez has been performing and writing ever since his parents exposed him to live theatre at the age of four. His songs are reflections on current and historical events viewed from a slightly cynical, but humorous perspective.

His folk and blues inspired melodies are purposefully catchy intended to invite the listener to join in and sing along.

The concert series takes a little break on Friday, July 20th as the annual folk festival takes over the park with music, food, friends and fun.

The festival is renowned for its mix of accessibility and easy-going comfort, affordability and small-town friendliness, shaded day stages and some of the finest folk, world, roots, blues and brilliantly “un-categorizable” music from across Canada and around the world.

The Envision Financial Twilight Concert Series return on July 25, and run every Wednesday and Friday at 7 p.m. rain or shine.
