Salt Spring Island Musicians

Valdy does it again with the timely and humourous "Six Feet Away". Filmed and recorded on Salt Spring Island, BC, November 10, 2020

Bill Henderson's new song "Dusty Old Guitar" is a timely reflection on issues and struggles of the past half century. It is a unique and moving creation that expresses support for the Black Lives Matter movement and inspires hope for a progressive future. Recorded October 30, 2020.

Valdy, born Valdemar Horsdal in Ottawa, Canada has been part of the fabric of Canadian pop and folk music for over 34 years. A man with a thousand friends, from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island to Texas to New Zealand, he's a singer, guitarist and songwriter who catches the small but telling moments that make up life.

Remembered 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, Valdy 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.
