The Envision Twilight Concert Series continues on June 21 from 7 to 8 p.m. with Back Door Slam at Fraser River Heritage Park.
Kat Wahamaa, Jennie Bice, Tony Rees and Joe Samorodin make up Back Door Slam. Collectively they’ve received rave reviews for their music all over the globe with their soaring vocals, strong harmonies, flying fiddle, swingin’ guitar, harmonica, bass, mandolin and washboard comprise their unmistakable sound.
Back Door Slam plays an eclectic variety of styles including country, blues, bluegrass and Western Swing; traditional music of the British Isles; and even Finnish folk. They infuse these styles with elements of East Coast kitchen party, punk rock-a-billy and a penchant for swing and rhythm.
