Popular Salt Spring Island folk singer Valdy returns to the Alberni Valley on Sunday, Dec. 8 for an afternoon Christmas fundraising concert at Char’s Landing.

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.

Juno winner Valdy has sold almost half a million copies of his 13 albums.

Doors open at 1:30 p.m. and Valdy takes to the stage from 2:30–4:30 p.m. Advance tickets are $25 ($30 at the door) and on sale at Rollin Art Centre and Gayle’s Fashions.
