Fiddlin’ Frenzy will perform on the  Envision Twilight Concert Series stage tonight (June 22) at 7 p.m. in Mission’s  Fraser River Heritage Park.

Fiddlin’ Frenzy is a pair of B.C. siblings who have taken the Western competitive fiddle scene by storm.

Both Kai and Lia discovered fiddle music at a very young age.

Toe-tapping and upbeat fiddle music was a nice break from their classical training. Soon fiddle music has become a part of their lives.

The fiddling and clogging duet performs Celtic and traditional music at many events across North America including Celticfest Vancouver, Northwest Folklife, Maritime Festival and the 2010 Olympics.

They have won numerous fiddling contests in various categories at the B.C. Provincial and Grand North America fiddle contest, John Arcand Fiddle Fest, Kiwanis (classical) Music Festival and many other competitions.

The duo has  released two CDs – the first in 2007 under their old name Old Time Fiddle Kids, when they were only nine and seven.

A few years later, fiddle master Calvin Vollrath was amazed by their skill at such a young age and invited them to do a recording together at his studio.

On June 27, also at 7 p.m., the Groovedaddys bring their jazz funk to the Twilight Stage.

Groovedaddys are fairly new, but many of the members have played together for years in other bands.

Chuck Cave (keyboards and alto sax) and Zaf Kundakcioglu (drums and percussion) wanted to form a band to play the music that soothes the soul and moves the feet.

They found the perfect guitar player for the group in Jim Verwoerd and a short time later were very happy to add Johan Worst on bass.

Cave is an accomplished piano, keyboard and saxophone player and leader of bands from trios to big swing bands.

The Art in the Park program continues with a variety of visual artists presenting their work each evening of Twilight.

Concerts are a community, free-by-donation series. For more information call 604-826-0277.
