Kennedys and Maria in the Shower next up in performer line up

The Envision Twilight Concert Series continues this week

The Kennedys will perform at Fraser River Heritage Park.

The Envision Twilight Concert Series continues tomorrow (Aug. 23) from 7 to 8 p.m. as Julie and Carli Kennedy perform in Mission’s Fraser River Heritage Park.

The Kennedys are a powerhouse duo with a musical bond that only identical twins can share.

With Carli on vocals and guitar and Julie on vocals and violin, they have developed a sound that is all their own – a fusion of their background in country, folk, jazz, and Celtic music.

Originally from Powell River, these sisters are known for their exceptional harmonies, fine musicality, and sincere songwriting style.

An undeniably energetic duo, the Kennedys’ performances bring a mix of toe-tapping tunes and intimate, heartfelt songs to the stage.

Also appearing on the Twilight stage will be Maria in the Shower (Aug. 28) also from 7-8 p.m.

Maria in the Shower is an entertaining band at the leading edge of Canada’s new folk sound. Their musical approach is a simple but potent blend of traditional folk and jazz with lyrics that explore fundamental human questions, delivered with pure fun and energy.

The band’s music is a part Vaudeville, part cabaret, part punk and part folk, featuring Tin Pan Alley ditties, Cuban shuffles, spirituals, roots, rockabilly and more.

They call their music swing/folk/gypsy, and see themselves as wandering minstrels, entertainers hewn “from the old cloth.”

These four young men (none of them named Maria) have the entertaining power of a traveling circus with the musical depth to back it up.

The public is encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket and settle in for a range of live music at Fraser River Heritage Park, located at 7494 Mary St. The Blackberry Kitchen and The Log Cabin Café are open during both performances. Admission to the concerts is free, but donations are appreciated.
