The Envision Twilight Concert Series welcomes Tangent to Fraser River Heritage Park on Friday, Aug. 12 from 7 to 8 p.m. Tangent is an offshoot of the originally scheduled group, August.

Rae Armour began her career with a popular rock band from Edmonton, has opened for Faith Hill, and has released two CDs. Her warm, dusky voice and musical versatility pleases fans of both roots and rock.

Linda Kidder has toured with kd lang, Gary Fjellgaard, Ian Tyson, and Michelle Wright. She has done studio work with artists from Bon Jovi to Rita MacNeil. Linda is one of the busiest musicians in Vancouver.

Wit, wisdom and hilarity weave through their musical tapestry.  These women have joined forces to create a powerful musical experience, with Rae on acoustic guitar, Linda on bass and joining them for this show, Daryl Jahnke on guitar.

They are equally at home on stage or on the back porch combining their unique blend of folk, country, bluegrass and pop with their own original style and panache.

Aug. 12 is Envision’s special “night of thanks” to Twilight audiences. The series sponsor will offer fresh Chilliwack corn on the cob to the first 500 concert-goers in appreciation of their support of the concert series.

The Art in the Park program features Gina Esche’s natural way to body wellness and Betty Sandmark’s beaded jewelry.

The Envision Twilight Series welcomes Charlotte Diamond to Fraser River Heritage Park on Wednesday, Aug. 17 from 7 to 8 p.m.

Since winning a Juno Award for her first recording, 10 Carrot Diamond, Charlotte Diamond has become one of Canada’s most prominent family performers, performing across North America, Europe, and Central America. Charlotte performs in English, French and Spanish.

Charlotte’s engaging personality is apparent in her lively and expressive shows, and her commitment to quality music. She now has 13 recordings, two nationally-televised videos, and two teacher’s resource music books. Parents and kids recognize and love her memorable songs such as “The Hug Bug,” “Je suis une pizza,” and her signature song, “Four Hugs a Day.”

Her many awards include the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Commemorative Medal in recognition of her exemplary support of UNICEF, and she has been named a “Paul Harris Fellow” by Rotary International, “in appreciation of significant assistance given to the furtherance of better understanding and friendly relations among peoples of the world.”

Charlotte Diamond’s performance is sponsored by Save-On Foods.

The Art in the Park program features Betty Sandmark’s beaded jewelry; Luke Gregson’s unconventional art; and children’s author Kim Oshiro.

Bring a lawn chair or blanket and join us at the park.  The Log Cabin Café and the Blackberry Kitchen are open. Admission is free but donations are encouraged. Your support along with the generous contributions of sponsors will ensure that the series continues.  For more information call 604-826-0277.
