Barney Bentall brings his Legendary Hearts to Sidney for a special anniversary performance.

Barney Bentall celebrates 25 years in music

The Sidney show includes special guest Nicola Linde, a powerful singer, songwriter and musician.

Barney Bentall and the Legendary Hearts hit the stage next month at the Mary Winspear Centre.

The show, presented by Rock.It Boy Entertainment and 100.3 the Q!, features the Vancouver-based Bentall, who has been creating music since 1978.

The band’s debut album featured three songs, Something to Live For, House of Love (is Haunted) and Come Back to Me,  that became instant hits and the six albums that followed were also well-received.

Their self-­titled debut reached platinum status in Canada and garnered a Juno Award for Most Promising Group of the Year in 1989.

In addition, the group was nominated for a Genie Award for Restless Dreamer in 1990.

The Sidney show includes special guest Nicola Linde, a powerful singer, songwriter and musician.

Her intense lyrics are delivered with big vocals. An artist with an edge, her perspective is definitely female. With a strong stance and assertive delivery, she has the energy and passion to stand out from the crowd.

With such songs as Cream For Your Coffee, This Time and The Other Woman, Linde reveals her thoughts on being a young woman today in a way that transcends gender.

She gives forth on love gone wrong and jobs that didn’t go right, heartache, soul-searching and triumph with songs that are raw, confessional and emotional.
