Jack Singer Concert Hall
Award-winning singer/songwriter Steve Bell teams up with the Calgary Dream Centre for an evening not to be missed
Join Steve Bell, along with talented artists Gilles Fournier, Bart McKay, and Murray Pulver, for the 16th Annual Music for a Winter Evening, a concert benefiting the Calgary Dream Centre. The evening will feature music from Steve Bell's new album, Where the Good Way Lies, as well as a selection of seasonal favourites. Devoted Steve Bell fans as well as first time listeners will be taken on a journey of discovery that promises to enchant and delight.
Recorded using old analogue technology, and bringing in a number of new instruments and collaborators, Where the Good Way Lies celebrates the rootedness of history and tradition, balanced by the mystery of a journey that is still being traversed.
Here’s what people are saying:
“This is Steve Bell just getting better and better... sometimes defiant, often poignant, always singing of hope that goes past sentimental optimism.”
“Steve Bell tells us that Where the Good Way Lies is not one narrow path or idea, but the very real plane on which we all live and share with beauty, love, and the present.”

Suspended high above the stage is a laminated, 185,000-pound (90-ton) spruce-wood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.
