Event Details

Valdy, born Valdemar Horsdal in Ottawa, has been part of the fabric of Canadian pop and folk music for over 35 years.  A singer, guitarist, and songwriter whose work captures the small but telling moments that make up life, Valdy is best known for “Play Me a Rock and Roll Song”, his bitter-sweet memory of finding himself, a relaxed and amiable story-teller, facing a rambunctious audience at the Aldergrove Rock Festival circa 1968. He has sold almost half a million copies of his 13 albums, has two Juno Awards (Folk Singer of the Year and Folk Entertainer of the Year), a total of seven Juno nominations, and four Gold albums to his credit. As well as Valdy’s songwriting credentials, he has honed an informal  performance style that nonetheless shows a confidence gained over decades  of touring.

Today, he is based on Salt Spring Island, where he lives with his wife Kathleen, three dogs and a large cat. All three children are grown, flown and doing famously living in or near Vancouver or Colorado.


The show will begin at 7pm but doors will open at 6pm to avoid any lineups as we check peoples’ passports. A bar and concession will be available. the show will be two 45 min sets with a short intermission.

Tickets are $25.00 per person and are available on the Harrison Festival Society’s website.
