The Concrete Fitness Performances in the Park tonight, July 28, features three acts: Amber Brown, Jessie Rajala Chapin and Colin Easthope.

Easthope, who has been refining his sound for the past three years in Kelowna, will be performing with Williams Lake artists Joey Jacobson on bass and Brandon Hoffman on drums. 


Born and raised in Williams Lake, Easthope has mastered a sound of his own with a unique perspective on the classic blues and folk scenes.

He recorded his debut album March 2010 in Vancouver with his brother on drums and high school friends at Gladgnome Studios backing him up. 


Jessie Rajala Chapin, who also conducts the Quintet Plus choir, combines angelic vocals, a heavenly guitar and a fiery wit in her own performances. 

Her influences as a singer/song-writer include her roots in gospel and old country, her passion for the music of the 40s and 70s, her classical training, and her knack for telling a good story.  

Chapin’s performance group includes Kevin Epp on keyboard, bass and accordion and Lyndon Froese on lead guitars — electric and acoustic.

Not only can Epp play a tune on a piano, he can tune a piano.  Furthermore, he can compose a tune on a piano and even add lyrics.  Epp can occasionally be persuaded to get out his accordion, too, an instrument he picked up on a dare a few years back.

Chapin recorded her first album Light in the Darkness in 2005. The album received nation-wide play on CBC radio.


Concrete Fitness Performances in the Park normally take place in the Gwen Ringwood Theatre in Boitanio Park starting at 6:30 p.m. But if it is raining the concert is moved to either the Gibraltar Room or Rink 2 in the Cariboo Memorial Complex depending on availability of either space.
