Vernon’s own Jodi Pederson and relatively new Vernonite Tanya Lipscomb have teamed up as a power-packed musical duo.

With more than 35 years of combined song-writing experience, and a plethora of albums, accolades and awards under their belts, there is magic in the air when these two songstresses share the stage. Both Pederson and Lipscomb are multi-instrumentalists with strong vocal abilities, and their talents will be shared in full.

Tonight, they will be weaving a tapestry of stunning songs and harmonious magic at The Hub Arts Collective at 8 p.m., showcasing new material from both artists.

The artistry and entertaining does not stop there for this natural duo. In the spring this year, Pederson contacted Lipscomb with an interest in branching out into children’s entertainment. Lipscomb, also known as “Kiki the Eco Elf,” has been entertaining children across Canada for more than five years, released two children’s albums and was actively looking for another performer to share the stage and get silly with on the next album due out spring 2014. Finally, the fruition of this collaboration will explode as Pederson and Lipscomb debut their children’s entertainment act, “Kiki and Gogo.” Bring the kids downtown this Saturday to The Hub at 11 a.m. and celebrate silliness, musical adventures, interactive story-telling and a double action magic show.

Tickets to tonight’s show are $10 at the door, $5 for students. Saturday’s show is $5 per person, at the door, or $15 per family. The Hub Arts Collective is on 30th Avenue, beside the Towne Theatre.
