Barney Bentall & The Grand Cariboo Opry Christmasby
Legendary Canadian musician Barney Bentall has just released his ninth studio album Flesh & Bone which was recorded in Vancouver. Currently touring through Alberta, Bentall will be playing a very special concert at the Vogue Theatre on December 8, 2012.
Richardson GMP and Potluck Café Society, in association with Paul Mercs Concerts, are proud to present Barney Bentall and The Grand Cariboo Opry at The Vogue Theatre on Saturday, December 8. A treasured tradition among Vancouver’s local community, this fundraiser and one-of-a-kind variety show brings over 800 concertgoers together to support Potluck Café Society.
The Potluck Café Society is a social enterprise that works to transform lives in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside by providing people in the community with stable employment and free, nutritious meals through its café and catering business. Over the past six years, the proceeds of Barney Bentall & The Grand Cariboo Opry have helped to create jobs and serve over 40,000 nutritious meals to people living in the Downtown Eastside.
At the Christmas show Barney Bentall will host an evening of entertainment with special guests like Ridley Bent, Dustin Bentall, Wendy Bird, Kendel Carson, Matt Masters, and more. Tickets are currently available for $39.95 to $49.95 through the Vogue Theatre box office.

Wendy Bird is really awesome as well; she plays ’round the North Shore a fair bit. Would love to win the CD!!
Wow! I would love to attend this wonderful Opry!
I have enjoyed Barney Bentall’s music since he formed his first band in 1978 called Brandon Wolf. I still have Brandon Wolf records. I have followed his music throughout the years, and still love him today. I use to send him fan letters as a kid and he would write back. He’s a great guy.
I would love to go to this , good luck everyone!

Been a big fan of Barney since the late 80’s. Would love to go or at least get his new CD!
The recent bentall concert in Kamloops was the best live performance I have seen at the Sagebrush Theater
One of the best holiday traditions the annual Grand Cariboo Opry show. Someone mentioned Wendy Bird upthread, one of the best voices ever.
Love Barney Bentall! I even suffered through a Bon Jovi concert on Citadel Hill in Halifax as a teen just to see Barney Bentall!!
I would love to see Barney Bentall live!
This sounds like so much fun, and a great cause as well
Barney Bentall is a true cowboy in the best sense of the word: down to earth, honest, ethical. Has a ranch in the Cariboo. A real hero of and for B.C.
