As promised, Barefoot in the Backyard is pleased to announce an additional band to perform at the much anticipated event coming to Edmonton in September this year. We are thrilled to reveal that the Barenaked Ladies will be joining us for this magical evening! Known for their bouts of improvisational humor and for breaking into rap between songs, they will certainly add to what already promises to be a magical evening. If you haven’t already seen the Barenaked Ladies live, you certainly shouldn’t miss this incredible opportunity. The Barenaked Ladies have sold over 14 million albums and are adored for their songs’ catchy and fun sound with “emotional centers”. This wonderful event is now set to include the Barenaked Ladies alongside Sarah McLachlan, Colin James, students from the Sarah McLachlan School of Music, and more.
