The Envision Twilight Concert Series presents the Corbin Brothers on Friday, June 24 at Fraser River Heritage Park from 7 to 8 p.m.

The Corbin Brothers, with Solomon Janzen, have been performing for the past eight years. Each has been recognized for his incredible music skills:  Marco, 18, on guitar and vocals; Tony, 15, on drums and bassist Robbie, 17, a two-time Vancouver Guitar Show champion.

Over the past year they have played many shows with locals bands such as Random Dander, Stereo Standby, Harma White, Damn Fine Cop, Ancients, and Fanaticus at venues such as the Captain’s Cabin, Mission Elks Hall, Cottage Bistro in Vancouver, SRT High School in Maple Ridge, Mission Playstation, the Bellevue, and various fundraisers.

All members are currently busy in various music projects and teaching. Janzen, 18, joined with the Corbin Brothers last year and added his vocal and guitar skills to the group. This year, they have been working with a high school peer, singer Lindsay Lloyd, who will join them for a few songs on June 24. She has opened for Brian McKnight at the Orpheum theatre in Vancouver.

You will hear everything from reggae and ska to classic rock and even a bit of jazz fusion with amazing musical solos thrown into the mix.

The Art in the Park program features Aboriginal art of Nancy Arcand; glass blown beadwork and jewelry from Ania Kyte; Luke Gregson’s unconventional art from construction materials; and mixed media art from Paul Hope.

The Envision Twilight Concert Series welcomes Central Fraser Valley Fiddlers to Fraser River Heritage Park on Wednesday, June 29.

The Central Fraser Valley (CFV) Fiddlers’ aim since 1973 has been to maintain and promote old time Canadian and traditional fiddle and folk music by encouraging young and old to develop musical talent, and to have fun.

Members come from as far as Hope and Vancouver, and range widely in age and backgrounds. They host a Jamboree in January and a fiddle contest on the Saturday of the May long weekend, both held at the A.S.A. hall in Abbotsford.

They play for public and private functions, providing entertainment to the community at various venues, including seniors’ homes all over the Lower Mainland.

They will be at Fraser River Heritage Park on July 1 to perform for the Canada Day celebrations.

On June 29, CFV Fiddlers will play great old time Canadian and traditional songs such as Maple Sugar, Irish Washerwoman, Whiskey Before Breakfast and Chinese Breakdown. It will be an evening of toe-tapping, get-up-and-dance music!

The Art in the Park program features hand crafted rock candles of Anastasia Greenan; children’s book author Kim Oshiro; Gina Esche’s natural way to body wellness; and metal art silhouettes of Sendana Vehabovic.

Admission is free but donations are encouraged. Your support along with the generous contributions of sponsors will ensure that theseries continues. For more information call 604-826-0277.
