Scots born and now Canada based, Tony McManus has come to be recognized throughout the world as the leading guitarist in Celtic music. Through Tony’s hands the emotions of celtic music are transferred to the guitar and the listener is drawn into the driving energy of a reel or the timeless atmosphere of a lament – each finding an authentic voice through his interpretation.

Prairie Mountain Fiddlers
Back by popular demand! This will be a foot-stomping, toe-tapping evening full of good old-time fiddle music. This group plays for the people and for their love of the music. It is just good old-fashioned fun.

There are many benefits to keeping it local with your entertainment and cultural activities. Tickets are all very reasonably priced for top-quality performers. BCT is a lovely, intimate theatre and you get to meet the performers after the show! They are fantastic about signing autographs and posing for pictures. It is fun to watch these amazing talents on stage and then meet them as real people after the show.
The theatre also has a Facebook page, which is a great place to keep up to date and to interact with others interested in live theatre. One of the interesting benefits to being a fan of the page is the “Behind the Scenes” pictures that are posted. It is a great way to see what goes on before and after the show.
Come and check out Airdrie’s hidden gem. Imagine it … live!
