BARNEY & DUSTIN BENTALL.

Imperial Theatre, 24 King Square South.

8:00 pm. Canadians who came of age in the eighties got hooked on the gutsy lyrics and solid beats of Barney Bentall and the Legendary Hearts’ songs like Something to Live For and Crime Against Love. Like most of us, Bentall has been on quite a journey since then. It’s included giving up the music business to operate a cattle ranch in BC, becoming a father and a grandfather and coming back to music in 2007 with recordings and extensive touring. On this acoustic tour Bentall features his latest songs, influenced by an array of genres from folk to roots, blues-­rock to pop, and even a hint of Celtic. Bentall says, “The 2012 album title (Flesh & Bone) comes from my time and experience at the ranch. Vibrant flesh falls away and an older world is left with the bones. Life keeps rolling over. It’s the way she goes.” www.imperialtheatre.nb.ca (506) 674-4100.

LORENZO ART SERIES PRESENTS FABIOLA MARTINEZ.

Ward Chipman Art Gallery, UNB Saint John.

Lorenzo Art Series is pleased to present Fabiola Martinez, March 22nd - April 9th. Her exhibit is titled Natural Fragments. "As an artist, I am influenced by my cultural upbringing. There are two things that shaped the direction of my artistic expression and style: living in Mexico and being trained and educated as an architect. My approach to painting has followed a movement that I often liken to a piece of music: each stroke of the brush is like the wave of a conductor’s wand, changing the direction of the tempo, of melody, while shaping every single detail." - Fabiola Martinez. Ward Chipman Art Gallery. Free Admission.
