Cariboo Express coming to Sooke

Big show coming down to the Sooke Community Hall in November.

Having an ache for some good ol’ fashioned Canadian roots, rock and country music? Well, there might just be a cure for that.

On Nov. 22, the Sooke Community Hall will host the Barney Bentall and The Cariboo Express show, which will take place at 7:30 p.m.

The show will include a mix of comedy, storytelling and a wide list of musicians, including Ridley Bent, Dustin Bentall, Wendy Bird, Kendel Carson, Matt Masters, and the Gold RushAll Star band.

Proceeds from all the show’s sponsors will go in support of the Sooke Food Bank. Since the Cariboo Express tour began in 2006, the group has raised more than $500,000 for numerous charities, and $140,000 just last year.

The group will begin its tour on Nov. 6, in Calgary and make its way across through B.C. and on to Vancouver Island.

The Sooke show will be presented by Mel Dobres, the Sooke Harbour Players and the EMCS Society.

Tickets are available via eventbrite.ca, Shoppers Drug Mart, EMCS program office and the Stick in the Mud Coffee Shop.
