It’s shaping up to be a great live show Jan. 29 at Tractorgrease Café.

Singer-songwriters Dustin Bentall and Carleton Stone will take turns on stage Thursday night at the new live Tractorgrease venue on Chilliwack Lake Road.

It’s like east meets west, as Stone, who hails from Sydney, Nova Scotia, performs with B.C. boy Bentall.

“Carleton Stone was out of tour in B.C. and Dustin was here in B.C. already so it just made sense,” said Jeff Bonner, owner of Tractorgrease Multimedia.

Carleton Stone’s tune ‘Blood is thicker than Water’ won recording of the year as well as pop recording of the year from his album, Draws Blood, at Music Nova Scotia awards.

It’ll be an early show, wrapping up around 9 p.m. They keep the volume reasonable.

Bentall was raised on the music of Neil Young, The Band, The Beatles and Steve Earle, as the Vancouver-born son of Barney Bentall. He’s written and co-written many songs, and likes collaborating with a range of great musical talent.

Since Tractorgrease has moved out to the Chilliwack River Valley from downtown, they’ve been holding regular live shows, and offering dinner specials at the cafe.

“We’ve been turning people away the past few Saturday night shows,” Bonner says.
