On November 22, the Grand Cariboo Opry takes over the Vogue Theatre for a night of folk, roots and rock. It’s an annual touring concert around B.C. that benefits a different local charitable organization in every city.

This year, the Opry benefits the deserving and hard-working folk at the Potluck Café Society. To date, in the nine years that the Opry has been going on, the multi-artist event has raised over $250,000 towards several worthy causes.

The Grand Cariboo Opry is a highly entertaining show, hosted by Canadian music icon Barney Bentall, with an exceptional roster of friends and guests including Ridley Bent, Dustin Bentall, Wendy Bird, Kendel Carson, Matt Masters and the occasional special guest.

Between songs, Barney and cast blend humourous and sentimental monologues to showcase sponsors amid a heartfelt set of roots, folk and rock favourites. It’s a highly engaging show that celebrates community through music, laughter, and a real hootenany of a party.
