Join us for the fourth and final concert in the Seymour Art Gallery’s 2012 Music Series. Alternative country-rockers Dustin Bentall and Kendel Carson will perform an intimate concert at the Seymour Art Gallery, right in the heart of Deep Cove.
Music is undoubtably in Dustin Bentall's DNA, linking from his Canadian rocker father Barney Bentall. He was just a boy when his parents bought a rundown farm in British Columbia's heartland. As the family gathered to rebuild the place, they cobbled together a soundtrack of Petty, Prine, Young and Springsteen. Those driving roots-rock sounds would find their way into Bentall's early guitar musings, and then into his adult songwriting fire; sixteen years later, Bentall would open for Prine. It was a dream come true. So is this: two full-length albums and his brand new EP, which are chock full of restless songs drawn from a roaming heart.
Kendel Carson is a singer who’s both confident and coy, and a musician who’s technically gifted but spontaneous at heart. Her debut album Dynamite ties together everything that makes her one of today’s most promising new performers – her mentorship with Chip Taylor, a childhood spent in the prairies of Alberta and, later, the burgeoning roots music scene of Victoria, and her lifelong passion for music and the fiddle.
Tickets are $25 or $22 for members, and are available at the Seymour Art Gallery or by calling 604-924-1378. Doors open at 7pm, and the show begins at 8pm.
