Bragg Creek Performing Arts is a not-for-profit organization staffed entirely by volunteers. We bring quality concerts, by professional performers, to residents of and visitors to the Bragg Creek/Redwood Meadows area.
Our currently scheduled performances are as follows:
YoUthtopia is evening of entertainment by professional, independent, under 21, Alberta based artists. It provides a opportunity for young artists to perform on stage and an opportunity for the public to hear incredibly talented musicians, singers and songwriters. For more details, see our YoUthtopia page.
YoUthtopia helps support young artists. Tickets are only $15 and can be purchased from the artists. Tickets are also available from all our regular ticket sources and the proceeds from the concert are split between all the performing artists and a local charity. For this performance there will be no $5 youth tickets available.
Our first YoUthtopia was held in May 2010 at the Bragg Creek Festival. This will be the 4th YoUthtopia.
Tickets are $15. If purchased online a $4 surcharge will be applied. Please get your tickets from the artists, at the door or from Spirits West.
We are pleased and excited to announce our Fall 2013 Season. We welcome some new performers along with some familiar faces. Sloan will be finding their “Folky” side to start the season in September followed by Pear and Alex*Cuba. If you enjoyed the original Barrage you will certainly recognize Lynae and Denis (Pear) who fronted the troop. Alex *Cuba wowed us with a solo performance at our Festival in 2009. This time he will bring his two piece backing band to enrich our experience, be sure to bring your dancing shoes!

Over the last 22 years, Juno and ECMA award winners Sloan have been a fixture of Canadian Rock. The group formed in Halifax in the early '90s while attending University. All four members of Sloan write their own songs, each has their own distinctive voice and when they play live they switch instruments accordingly with each different song. With influences diverse as The Beatles, punk rock and AC/DC, the young band was signed within months of their creation. They can boast massive Canadiana hits like "Money City Maniacs", "Coax Me" and "Beverly Terrace". Sloan recently released their coming of age album, Twice Removed.
After fronting Barrage, one of the most successful fiddle acts in the world, Lynae and Denis Dufresne toured the country with some of the biggest names in Canadian music. In 2005, they took time off from the road to settle in Calgary. They quickly became antsy and formed PEAR.
With Lynae as the songstress and Denis as the musical backbone, PEAR quickly developed a grassroots following in Canada, USA and Europe. With Lynae’s powerhouse vocals, and the duos sweet harmonies. This multi instrument, energetic and infectious performance that covers tunes from Beethoven, the Beatles, their own original country tunes and everything in between you won’t want to go home following the show.
Interweaving rock, soul, pop, and Latin-funk on his latest album, Cuba (a two time Grammy winner) continues his journey as a critically acclaimed independent artist who's charted his own destiny across the world stage, earning a growing legion of devoted listeners at each new juncture. “Music, for me, is not one style,” says Cuba. He consistently challenges perceptions about what Latin music is, and who listens to it, by being true to himself. The band consists of drums and electric bass with Alex fronting on guitars and vocals. A big sound comes from this small package with Alex’ wizardry on the guitar, through innovative chord progressions or dizzying solos (all played without a pick), makes for an energetic show packed with memorable “moments”.
Unless otherwise indicated, performances are on Saturday evenings. The doors open at 7pm with the performance starting at 8pm. Starting in 2013 performances will be held at Bragg Creek Centre, in Bragg Creek, or Redwood House, in Redwood Meadows. Please check this site or your tickets for the location.
Beer and wine will be available from a cash bar. Non-alcoholic beverages and snacks will also be available.
