About Barney Bentall

Over a decade ago, legendary singer/songwriter Barney Bentall launched what is now known as The Cariboo Express tour. Featuring some of Canada’s finest roots and country musicians, his one-of-a-kind fundraising event has raised nearly $1 million in Western Canadian cities in support of local charities.

This year in Calgary, Mawer Investment Management and Stantec present the 5th Annual Peter Burgener Memorial Charity Concert – on November 1, 2019 at Mount Royal University’s Bella Concert Hall.

The concert is an annual tribute to the late Peter Burgener, an exceptional and influential architect, community activist, philanthropist and avid country music fan. All concert proceeds go to Classroom Champions to build strong communities by providing students, teachers and athletes with the skills for success.

The concert features guests Ridley Bent, Dustin Bentall, Wendy Bird, Leeroy Stagger and more. Sponsors are introduced with unique monologues scripted by Bentall and co-host Matt Masters.
