Albert Au and Brenda Lo, radio show hosts and folk singers, will take fans down memory lane this month with two shows in Richmond.

Hong Kong-based Au, and Fairchild Radio host Lo, will be singing folk songs and golden oldies in Cantonese and English.

Both are veteran performers, but the Jan. 24 and Jan. 26 shows at River Rock Casino Resort will mark the first time the two will perform together.

Au launched his entertainment career as a disc jockey with Radio Television Hong Kong. He signed a record deal in 1977, crafting numerous hit albums that earned him a title of Prince of Folk Songs, according to his biography. He later moved into producing, and today still hosts a radio show.

Lo entered the broadcast business in 1975 with what is now known as Asia Television. A few years later, Lo was a radio deejay and performer, releasing a string of albums. Today she hosts the Fairchild Radio programs “Brenda’s Jukebox” and “Only on Sunday.”

Showtime is 8 p.m. at River Rock Show Theatre.

Tickets, $48 to $148, at ticketmaster.ca or 1-855-985-5000. Partial proceeds of Jan. 26 show go to Variety, the Children’s Charity.
