Valdy, has been part of the fabric of Canadian pop and folk music for over 40 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. Valdy received the Order of Canada in 2011.
Rock and Roll Song
A Good Song
Lion Bear Fox (first-up)
Christopher Arruda (the lion), Cory Woodward (the bear) and Ryan McMahon (the fox) joined forces and soaring harmonies to form their eponymous alt-folk man-band in 2012. Listen to how this West Coast-based trio blend their distinct, equally powerful voices to kindle passion and a magic thats greater than the sum of three parts on their self-titled, full length debut CD Lion Bear Fox (2017).
