Acoustic duo J.D. Miner

The final performance in the Envision Financial Concert in the Park series takes place this Saturday, Sept. 12 at the Kariton Art Gallery stage (2387 Ware St.) in Mill Lake Park.

Canadian acoustic duo J.D. Miner sets the tone for the evening from 4 to 5:30 p.m.

The talents of songwriter Darryl Klassen and accompanist Chad Joiner collide to create an unpredictable caboodle of whimsical songs about life, both real and imagined, and old-time banjo and fiddle tunes.

The blues and rock band Madflower takes to the stage from 6 to 7:30 p.m. This local coffee house and club staple features Eric VanSteenis on guitar, Steve Walsh on drums and keyboard, Kevin Phillips on bass, and Willis Taylor on guitar and vocals.

The Envision Financial series takes to local coffee houses starting on Saturday, Sept. 19 at Clayburn Gourmet Gallery (3033 Immel St.). For the full schedule, visit abbotsfordartscouncil.org.
