Coffee house series and Concert in the Park held at Abbotsford locations.

The Abbotsford Arts Council has announced a call for musicians to submit applications to perform in the 2014 Envision Financial Coffee House Concert and Concert in the Park Series.

The 2014 concert series will consist of 28 to 32 concerts taking place every Saturday evening between mid-May and late November.

Concerts are hosted at participating coffee houses in Abbotsford as well as in Mill Lake Park at the Kariton Art Gallery outdoor stage.

Applications will be accepted until Feb. 17 and are available for download at abbotsfordartscouncil.org or for pickup at the Kariton Art Gallery, 2387 Ware St.
