Valdy is a relaxed and amiable storyteller, who has been putting his thoughts to music and sharing them worldwide for decades. The folk singer is a crowd favourite when he comes to Port Alberni, and his upcoming Jan. 5 performance at Char’s Landing will be no different.
Valdy has sold half a million copies of his 13 albums, has two coveted Juno awards for 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 and Char’s Landing owner Charlene Patterson will be donating 10 percent of ticket sales to the audience’s favourite charity.
After 37 years of performing, Valdy is showing no signs of slowing down. His Port Alberni performance kicks off 2019’s tour season, which already includes an appearance Jan. 12 at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney, and another Jan. 19 in Brackendale at the Eagle Wing Ding.
