October 2, 3 (7:30pm) and 4 (2:30pm)
16 albums, 22 singles, 4 gold records, nearly half a million recordings sold worldwide. 2 Juno awards, 7 Juno nominations. An Order of Canada, for heaven’s sake!
We can only be speaking of Salt Spring’s very own Valdy. Consider the reviews:
“Few performers are capable of achieving the kind of energy he generates on stage.” – Globe and Mail
“…unquestionably the most public performer in Canada today, and the most loved.” – Macleans
“Valdy elicited a genuinely warm standing ovation, the real kind, where the applause continues long after the encore is assured.” – Winnipeg Free Press
How fitting it is that our very own Valdy should be opening the new ArtSpring season. The last time this Canadian folk legend played the ArtSpring stage was 2014, so we’re all really ready for another shot of his gracious and magnetic charm. Being such a key part of the island community makes him the perfect fit to launch the 2020-21 season.
