Mark Hildebrand will be in Abbotsford Aug. 23 as part of the Envision Financial Concert in the Park Series.

Born and raised in B.C., in a home filled with classical piano, western guitar and hymns of the church, Hildebrand’s musical journey was, from the start, diverse. Upon discovering the guitar as a young teen, he continued to explore and experiment with many styles of sound. Even though he won the Royal Conservatory of Music silver medal while training in classical guitar, in the end, his heart was won by the blues.

In writing and performance, Hildebrand’s structure and technique build the listener’s confidence in his skill. He exposes his soul, whether composing original pieces, performing live, or teaching music at a local college. His talent is in demand and he often plays for other local artists. Hildebrand’s most recent effort included writing, producing and playing guitar, mandolin and lap steel on the One Acre album titled “Big Back Yard.”

The concert takes place on the Kariton Art Gallery stage in Mill Lake Park (2387 Ware St.) from 6 to 8 p.m.
