CBC Studio 40, 700 Hamilton Street, Vancouver, B.C.
Featured artists: Barney Bentall, Ridley Bent, Kendel Carson, Dustin Bentall, Wendy Bird, Shari Ulrich & the entire Grand Cariboo Opry Cast
Canada's finest roots and country musicians join Juno Award winning musician Barney Bentall to put on a one of a kind event that hearkens back to a simpler time. The Grand Cariboo Opry is making a stop at CBC Studio 40 for an All Access TV taping on Friday December 3rd at 7:30 PM (doors at 7 PM).
Barney Bentall hosts the old time, variety show like proceedings and is joined by a mess of talented musicians. Everyone plays and everyone sings....sometimes all at once! It's a night chock-full of music, humour, warm wit and unique lyrical endeavours reminiscent of bygone days.
"It's full of life. The music takes you on a journey -- gospel, old-time country and rock. The mood migrates all over the place. There's a mix of music and storytelling and it taps into a time long ago," says Bentall.
This event is fully booked but a rush line will be available starting at 6pm. Because it is CBC B.C.'s annual Open House and Food Bank Day we hope you'll come early to take part in this excitement filled day.
