Join us for this 11th Anniversary fundraising concert in support of Potluck Café Society.
The Cariboo Express was born out of Barney Bentall’s love for the Cariboo region of BC and is the honorary birthplace of this long-running show. In doing a little at-home research on the area, Bentall came across the history of F.J. Barnard, and The B.X. Express, the main cartage and passenger services company on the Cariboo Road, also known as “Barnard’s Express”. So, in homage to the area and it’s rich history, Mr. Barnard Bentall saw fit to rename the traveling roadshow, The Cariboo Express.
The Cariboo Express is a highly entertaining show, hosted by Canadian music icon Barney Bentall, who blends humourous and sentimental monologues with a heartfelt set of roots and folk favourites. Bentall is joined by an exceptional roster of friends and guests including Ridley Bent, Dustin Bentall, Wendy Bird, Matt Masters and the Gold Rush All Star band, plus special guests. Past special guests have included Colin James, Jill Barber, 54-40’s Neil Osborne, Jim Cuddy, Tom Wilson and many more.
