Quintessential jazz, Bard says goodbye, and The Damn Chandelier

There are a lot more live performances and get togethers in Langley City this summer – here’s what people will find happening this week, July 26 to August 2.

Bard in the Valley ends it’s 2019 run with final performances on the Spirit Square Stage in Douglas Park.

All performances are free and open to all ages.

Sounds of Summer Concert Series at McBurney Plaza welcomes Quintessential Jazz Band on Wednesday, July 31. The band has played jazz together throughout the Lower Mainland and beyond since 2004 and won the 2018 Fraser Valley Music Award in the Jazz category. From 7 to 8 p.m., they will be playing both jazz standards and original compositions.

Boppin’ in the Plaza is back on Friday, Aug. 2 for their second social of the summer. Put on by You’ve Gotta Have Friends, a Langley group hoping to get folks talking to one another, Damn Chandelier will be taking the stage in McBurney Plaza from 6 to 8 p.m. The band covers music that spans decades including classic rock, country, folk, Celtic, bluegrass, and rockabilly.
