On August 17 from 6-8 p.m. the Envision Concert in the Park Series is presenting Elsay at Mill Lake Park (on the Kariton Art Gallery Stage, 2387 Ware Street) in Abbotsford.

Elsay, a spirited new Vancouver-based folk group, was the brainchild of two Capilano University jazz students with a unique love of Scottish and Irish fiddle music.

They started jamming together in the summer of 2012 as a flute and guitar duo.

The pair discovered an incredible compatibility, and in searching for a fuller sound recruited a fiddler, mandolin player, and a tin whistle player.

Thus was born a fresh new sound in Canadian folk, replete with rhythmic and energetic guitar riffs, soaring whistle harmonies, and bright fiddling that should get your feet tapping.
