As June comes to an end, the Mission Twilight Concert Series presents Crescent Sky this evening (June 28) at Fraser River Heritage Park kicking off at 7 p.m.
This is a vocally driven four-part band with a blend of intricate harmonies, modern melodies and storytelling lyrics.
Crescent Sky had an amazing year with a Abbotsford Arts Council Emerging Artist Award, a spot of CBC Radio Spotlight program and numerous appearances around the Lower Mainland.
A highlight has been their performance at the CBC Musical Nooners last summer.
Band members include Anna Ratzlaff, Jason Ratzlaff, Anna Luth and Regan Luth. All are musically trained and care deeply about their craft.
Starting July with a bang, Willy Blizzard takes to the stage on Wednesday, July 3. This band is a favourite at the Twilight Series and one of the most requested from the audiences.
The acoustic trio plays original music in the folk/roots genre featuring beautiful vocal harmonies, guitar, banjo and stand up bass.
John Hough, the principal songwriter, has earned a reputation based on his deep, warm voice that delights audiences all over Canada. He has been recognized as having the “richest baritone west of the Rockies” and he is joined by Fran Wadigan and Andrea Law to round out this extraordinary band.
The concert series runs every Wednesday and Friday at 7 p.m. at Fraser River Heritage Park. Bring a blanket or a lawn chair and enjoy some excellent tunes in one of Canada’s most beautiful parks.
The series is sponsored by Prospera Credit Union, and all concerts are free.
