The trio is considered one of the premier acts in Canadian roots music.  Elliott Brood delivers otherworldly tones thanks to banjo and guitar-led rural stomps and Sasso’s heart-stopping rasp. Calgary band The Northern Beauties have just been included as an opener. New start time 7.45pm
The Bills perform Saturday, April 1. They are one of Canada’s finest roots ensembles with the outstanding musicianship of Marc Atkinson on mandolin, Richard Moody on violin, Scott White on Bass, Adrian Dolan on everything and the superb songwriting and lead singing of Chris Frye. The Bills have two JUNO nominations and multiple Western Canadian Music Awards under their belts.
An Evening with Basia Bulat is set for Saturday, May 13. Since the age of three, Bulat has been sitting on piano stools and trying to hammer things out. It started with her piano-teacher mum, but along the way Basia’s picked up guitar, autoharp, banjo, ukulele, sax and flute.  With four albums to her name she has been nominated for the Polaris Prize 3 times in 2008, 2015 & 2016.
Bragg Creek Performing Arts was formed in 1980 and currently presents five concerts per year split into fall and spring seasons. The organization’s goal is to present a wide variety of professional entertainers from all genres at affordable rates for the enjoyment of the public.
