Barney Bentall & The Grand Cariboo Opry
The 2015 Annual Barney Bentall & The Cariboo Express will be on Saturday, November 28th!
Tickets are on sale now!
The Annual Barney Bentall & The Cariboo Express Concert fundraiser for Potluck Café Society is a treasured tradition among Vancouver’s local community.
Over 900 concert goers come together to support Potluck at this one-of-a-kind classic variety show hosted by Canadian music icon and Juno-award winning musician Barney Bentall.
Barney is joined by two generations of the country’s finest roots and country musicians including Ridley Bent, Dustin Bentall, Kendel Carson, Wendy Bird & the entire Opry cast.
The musical hootenany harkens back to a simpler time filled with music and laughter, where songs and stories capture the imagination and warm the heart (think Prairie Home Companion). The performance blends humorous monologues with a heartfelt set of roots, folk, and country favorites. Prepare to cheer and sing along while dancing in the aisles!
All event proceeds support Potluck’s mission to transform lives in the Downtown Eastside by providing people with jobs and healthy food. Since 2006, proceeds from the Opry have funded over 46,000 free, nutritious meals for neighborhood residents.
