The Envision Twilight Concert Series continues on June 21 from 7 to 8 p.m. with Back Door Slam at Fraser River Heritage Park.

Kat Wahamaa, Jennie Bice, Tony Rees and Joe Samorodin make up Back Door Slam. Collectively they’ve received rave reviews for their music all over the globe with their soaring vocals, strong harmonies, flying fiddle, swingin’ guitar, harmonica, bass, mandolin and washboard comprise their unmistakable sound.

Back Door Slam plays an eclectic variety of styles including country, blues, bluegrass and Western Swing; traditional music of the British Isles; and even Finnish folk. They infuse these styles with elements of East Coast kitchen party, punk rock-a-billy and a penchant for swing and rhythm.

David Gogo takes the stage at the Envision Twilight Concert Series on June 26 from 7 to 8 p.m.

As one of Canada’s hardest working and most prolific blues guitar virtuosos, Gogo has amassed a worldwide fan base and an impressive list of accomplishments. He has earned four Juno nominations, the 2012 Western Canadian Music Award for Blues Recording of the Year, the CBC Saturday Night Blues’ Great Canadian Blues Award for a lifetime contribution to the blues in Canada, and has twice been named Maple Blues Guitarist of the Year. He has played on stage with acts ranging from ZZ Top and the Tragically Hip to Jimmy Vaughan and B.B. King. Gogo has released 13 albums to date and continues to tour relentlessly, performing across North America and Europe.

The Envision Twilight Concerts are held twice weekly on Wednesdays and Fridays. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and settle in for a range of live music at Fraser River Heritage Park.
