See Boomchix and Ralph Shaw live

Envision Twilight Concerts are held every Wednesday and Friday throughout the summer

Ralph Shaw will be performing at Fraser River Heritage Park on Wednesday

The Envision Twilight Concert Series continues on Friday, July 5 from 7 to 8 p.m. with Boomchix performing in Fraser River Heritage Park.

Janice Dunbar and Barb Wilkins front Boomchix, an emerging roots/country band from Vancouver.  The band blends fiddle, guitar, and mandolin with haunting harmonies in an energetic mix that evokes both the Canadian singer-songwriter tradition and the best of foot-stomping country. Boomchix is known for strong, heartfelt performances which avoid the slick gloss of much of modern country music.

July 5 is the second Full Cupboard Friday of the season.

“Envision Financial is thrilled that Bronwen and Mark Sutherland, new producers of the Envision Twilight Concert series, and the Mission Heritage Association are partnering with Envision Financial’s community hunger reduction program, The Full Cupboard,” says Carol Hamilton, manager of Envision’s Mission branch.  “We hope concert goers will donate to the program by bringing a non-perishable food item or cash donation on Full Cupboard Fridays throughout the summer. All donations benefit St. Joseph’s food bank.”

The Full Cupboard is an innovative community program designed to raise food, funds and awareness for food banks throughout the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley and Kitimat. Through this program, Envision Financial has committed to raising at least $1 million for local food banks over the next 10 years.

Ralph Shaw will be entertaining audiences at Fraser River Heritage Park on Wednesday, July 10 from 7 to 8 p.m.

Shaw, the “king of the ukulele,” is an unparalleled showman with a knack for engaging an audience. His music has been described as hilarious, inspirational, outrageous, touching, and thought provoking. He also manages to bring alive the true spirit of early 20th century Music Hall showmanship with his wit, comedic physicality and the voice of a seasoned chanteur.

Envision Twilight Concerts are held twice weekly on Wednesdays and Fridays at Fraser River Heritage Park. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the shows. Admission to the concerts is free, but donations to this community-based series are appreciated and encouraged.
