Fred Penner coming to Bragg Creek spring season


Canadian icon Fred Penner will headline the lineup for the Bragg Creek Performing Arts’ 2018 Spring Season.

Penner will entertain crowds during a matinee performance March 24 at 2 p.m. at Bragg Creek Community Centre.

A gentle giant with kind eyes and an undeniable ability to make you feel good about yourself, this musical master brings 45 years of commitment, consistency and depth to a career that skillfully blends the many genres of performing and communication.

His diverse repertoire includes a prolific 12 children’s albums; countless energetically packed live shows for throngs of eager audiences across North America. The two-time Juno crawled magically out of that hollow log for 12 seasons and more than 900 episodes in the hit CBC TV show Fred Penner’s Place receives fan mail to this day from some of the 55 million viewers.

Also on the schedule are Longview-based roots and swing duo Over the Moon at Redwood Meadows Feb. 10; award-winning Canadian pianist & vocalist Laila Baila with an evening show in Bragg Creek March 24; and multi award winning singer/songwriters Jill and Matthew Barber, siblings with a lifetime of gorgeous harmonies, in Bragg Creek on May 5.

Information and tickets for all shows can be found at Tickets are also available by calling 1-888-655-9090 or visiting Suncatchers in Bragg Creek.

A season ticket discount of 15 per cent applies to the three shows excluding the Penner performance.
