Mission's Jennie Bice is performing as one-half of Murphy's Lagh June 25.

Kitchen Sync and Murphy’s Lagh to grace Twilight stage

Weekly live music series runs Wednesday and Friday nights at Fraser River Heritage Park

The Mission Heritage Association invites you to Fraser River Heritage Park Wednesday and Friday as the 24th season of the Envision Financial Twilight Concert Series continues.

Local favourites Kitchen Sync will be on the Envision Financial Twilight Concert stage June 20 from 7 to 8 p.m. As founder of the Stepping Stone Music Company, Liisa Nessim has been instructing aspiring musicians of the Fraser Valley for years. It was in the Stepping Stone studio that Kitchen Sync was formed, bringing together eclectic local artists to perform original songs and covers. Kitchen Sync always performs from the heart, promising a rousing and crowd-pleasing evening in the park.

Murphy’s Lagh will be at Fraser River Heritage Park June 25 from 7 to 8 p.m. Belfast-born singer, guitarist, and tin whistle master Damian Brennan joins with local fiddle sensation Jennie Bice to form Murphy’s Lagh, a band well known at local venues and concert series throughout B.C. Pouring energy and passion into every performance, Murphy’s Lagh entrances their audience with everything from soft Irish ballads to fiddle and bodhran-driven reels.

The concert series runs every Wednesday and Friday at Fraser River Heritage Park from now until Aug. 29.

Concert goers are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner or treat themselves to a special pre-concert meal at the Blackberry Kitchen or The Log Cabin Café. Admission to the concerts is free, though donations are appreciated.
