Dan Hare returns for Twilight Series

Popular evening concert series continues in Agassiz

The Pioneer Park Twilight Concert kicked off on Wednesday night with a performance by Debbie Bergeron and Jeff Bowman.

And next Wednesday, the community is invited out to the second free show in the summer series — an acoustical set by Dan Hare. The Surrey-based musician took part in the series two years ago and he’s happy to be returning.

As a member of the popular band March Hare, getting out to do solo shows is a nice break.

“Music is my love,” he said. “It’s just something I’ve done all my life.”

At the Twilight Concert, Hare will play music from the likes of James Taylor, Jim Croce, John Denver and Gordon Lightfoot.

He’ll also be bringing along a book he penned a few years ago, called Regrets, They’ve Had a Few.

“I interviewed all of these people, from the age of 65 to 100 and asked them what they would do differently, what they would change,” he said.

But before he gets to Agassiz (July 25, 6:30 p.m.) he’ll be on stage at the BC Summer Games opening ceremony. The March Hare Band will be playing live as part of the opening ceremonies.

After that, they’ll head to Sturgis North.

The group has been together since 1998, and all the members work at their music full time.

“It’s been a good run and people know us and like us,” he said.

The Pioneer Park Twilight Concert 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.
