Bergeron opens Twilight Concert Series

Artist performing in Hope and Agassiz over next week

The Twilight Concert Series in Pioneer Park is back for the summer, bringing live music to the park every Wednesday evening.

The series will begin next week with a performance by Debbie Bergeron and Jeff Bowman.

Bergeron is from Hope, but has been spending a lot of time in Alberta as she considers a move to that province.

She told the Observer she’s happy to be back playing close to home. In addition to the Pioneer Park show, she’ll be playing Hope’s Memorial Park on Sunday (see page 10 for details).

“I haven’t played anything local for quite some time, I think it’s kind of nice to come back home,” she said.

Bergeron will be performing her show Songs and Stories, in which she talks to the audience about how songs were conceived and where she gets her inspirations from.

“I’ve gotten a lot of feedback,” she said. “And people say they enjoy the music but also the stories. They get to know the artist a lot more that way.”

The travel between home and Alberta has been keeping her busy, with a few live engagements and jams in Alberta.

“But I’m just really missing playing live,” she said, so she’s looking forward to the two upcoming performances.

She’s also happy to be playing with her long-time guitarist Bowman.

“We’ve worked together now since the late ’90s,” she said. “He’s just wonderful.”

The series is presented by the District of Kent Community Services Department, and sponsored by the Agassiz Harrison Lions Club, Prospera Credit Union and Agassiz Harrison Hope Observer.

To help fund the series, volunteers will be passing around a hat for donations during the show.

The concert runs from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Pioneer Park, outside The Observer’s office.
