Bernie and Red back at Twilight Concert Series

Becca Hess and Tyler Whelan perform Aug. 8 at Envision Twilight Concert series

Bernie and Red will be at Fraser River Heritage Park on Friday.

Bernie and Red are back at Fraser River Heritage Park for the Envision Twilight Concert Series on Friday, Aug. 3 from 7 to 8 p.m.

Bernie and Red’s humour is based on husband and wife situations and the joys and challenges of marriage and family life. Bernie is the straight man who lets fly with one liners, but Red is the one who holds centre stage most of the time. Red is brash, outspoken, a little outrageous at times, and very funny. She also has a great voice, and her musical numbers are integral to the act.

Bernie and Red have performed all over the world – from Alaska to Panama, from China to Singapore, and every state and province in North America.

The concert partner for this evening is Cedarbrooke Chateau.

 

Wednesday, Aug. 8

Get a preview of the Rockin’ on the River Music Festival with Becca Hess and Tyler Whelan at the Envision Twilight Concert Series on Wednesday, Aug. 8 from 7 to 8 pm.

Becca Hess is the daughter of local country star Kenny Hess and although just starting out, there’s no doubt the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. She may even be joined on one or two songs by her famous father.

Also performing is Tyler Whelan. Born in Fort McMurray, Whelan was introduced at a young age to the world of music. Writing his own songs since he could play a chord, and playing since he could hold an instrument, it was only natural that Whelan should pursue his love of music.

He connected with Johnny Gasparic of The Poverty Plainsman, an audio engineer, for his first solo album. With the help of Don Jorgensen, Brian Kelly, and Brad Johnson, the album Oldschool came to life.

Shortly after the CD release, Whelan was introduced to fellow country musician Kenny Hess, who would ultimately become a friend and mentor.

The concert partner for this evening is Rockin’ on the River Music Festival.

“Envision has been proud to support the Envision Twilight Concert Series for the past 12 years,” says Carol Hamilton, branch manager at Envision Financial’s Mission location.

The Art in the Park program continues with a variety of visual artists presenting their work each evening of Twilight.

Bring a lawn chair or blanket for a fun evening at the park.

The Blackberry Kitchen and The Log Cabin Café are open. Envision Twilight Concerts are a community, free-by-donation series.
