Valdy, born Valdemar Horsdal in Ottawa, Ont., has been part of the fabric of Canadian pop and folk music for more than 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.
