Valdy, Paul Valdemar Horsdal, born in Ottawa in 1945, has been part of the fabric of Canadian music for four decades and counting, over 34 years, a man with a thousand friends, from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island to Texas to New Zealand. Valdy is a singer, guitarist and bassist songwriter who catches the small but telling moments that make up life.

He shares his life with Kathleen, who has aided and abetted, accompanied and ably helped steer Valdy through the last thirty-three years of harsh and mellow weather.

Valdy has sold almost half a million copies of his 15 albums, and is 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, , has two Juno Awards (Folk Singer of the Year and Folk Entertainer of the Year), seven Juno nominations, and four Gold albums to his credit..

Valdy is one of Canada’s influential songwriters. His own tune “A Good Song” was recorded by Quincy Jones, who actually sang lead vocal on the recording, retitled “Just a Man”. “Play Me a Rock and Roll Song” has been covered by a few artists, including John Kay of Steppenwolf.
