Mill Lake Music runs Saturday evenings in Abbotsford

Concert series in Mill Lake Park until Sept. 1

The Abbotsford Arts Council presents a series of concerts in Mill Lake Park every Saturday until Sept. 1.

Mill Lake Music starts at 6 p.m. outside of Kariton Art Gallery, 2387 Ware St.

The series was known in previous years as the Fraser Valley Concert Series or the Envision Concert Series.

Mill Lake Music now features four musical acts per evening – three outside, starting at 6 p.m., 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. and a fourth performer inside the gallery at 9 p.m., when refreshments are also served.

The shows are geared towards music fans of all ages, and especially young adults and young families who can pack a blanket and picnic dinner for the event.

The physical layout of the space has also changed. Bands previously performed on the deck attached to the outside of the gallery, but a new stage platform is now located across the lawn so that visitors can sit uphill from it in the shade and face toward the view of the lake.

Upcoming performers are:

– July 28: Kat and Tony, Kin, The May Eyes, Ian Fildes

– Aug. 4: Rachel ’n’ Ted, Frank David Jazz Band (double set), Coalmont

– Aug. 11: Jon Anderson, Casinos, Emma Citrine

– Aug. 18: Kuri, Jenny Banai, Saturdays, Mr. Tuna

– Aug. 25: Horizon, Thistle Dew, Villain Villain

– Sept. 1: The Crescent Sky, Warm Amps, Blessed, Stephen Carl O’Shea

Meanwhile, the Jam in Jubilee series also continues, with two more Thursday evening concerts in Jubilee Park from 6 to 10 p.m.

Featured performers on July 26 are Alela Diane, The Tourist Company and David Morin.

Performers on Aug. 2 are Ben Cottrill, Sister Says and DJ Simon Bridgefoot.
