Barney Bentall hits Brentwood

Brentwood’s Music in the Bay fundraises for food banks

Barney Bentall’s Grand Cariboo Opry will hit Brentwood again this November.

The show will be part of the sixth annual fundraiser by Brentwood Music in the Bay for the Mustard Seed and Sidney Lions food banks.

“Over the past five years we’ve raised $37,700 which was split between the two local food banks,” said Leslie Gentile, artistic director for Brentwood Music in the Park.

Bentall has played in Brentwood a handful of times before, both for the food bank fundraiser and for Brentwood Music in the Park which runs through the summer months.

“The cast this year will include Ridley Bent, Dustin Bentall, Kendel Carson, Wendy Bird and more,” said Gentile, who also noted two shows will be presented this year, one on the Peninsula and one in Victoria.

The Peninsula show takes place Friday, Nov. 23 at 7 p.m. at the Saanichton Friendship Community Church (7820 Central Saanich Rd.) and the Victoria show takes place Saturday, Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. at First Metropolitan Church (932 Balmoral Rd.)

Tickets for both shows are $32 and are available at Lyle’s Place (Victoria), The Dollar Den and Breadstuffs Bakery (Brentwood) and online at eventbrite.com.
