Humorous musical duo Bernie and Red coming to Chilliwack Legion

The married pair blends their English humour with observations about North America in their music

A married musical duo will be bringing songs and snickers to the Chilliwack Legion on Dec. 1.

Originally from Liverpool but now residing in Canada, Bernie and Red are musical humourists who have delighted nationwide audiences for more than 35 years.

Frequent comparisons to The Smothers Brothers, Bette Midler, Johnny Carson & Benny Hill notwithstanding, these two are originals, blending their English humour with observations about North America, family life and marriage in a package which is accessible to all.

Veterans of the B.C. entertainment scene, they have built a large and faithful following and have produced more than a dozen albums and an autobiography/songbook, Our Story which contains 20 of their original comedy songs, and they have toured the U.S. and Canada to rave reviews.

The popularity of Bernie and Red, whose marriage has lasted for more than 50 years, is a testament to their funny material, exciting stage presence & their sharp delivery, which is often cheeky, but never offensive. Their music covers every era, but mostly those classics that you remember from the ’50s and ’60s.

Bernie and Red are at the Chilliwack Legion on Sunday, Dec, 1 at 2 p.m. Call Elaine for more info 604-847-8444.
