About this Event

Paul Valdemar Horsdal, born 1 September 1945 in Ottawa, Ontario, commonly known as Valdy, is a Canadian folk and country musician whose solo career began in the early 1970s. He is known for “Rock and Roll Song”, his first mainstream single. Valdy is the winner of two Juno Awards for Folk Singer of the Year and Folk Entertainer of the Year, and has received seven additional Juno nominations. His sixteen albums have achieved sales of nearly half a million copies, four of which are certified gold.

Karel Roessingh is a composer, arranger, producer and musician who has written scores for over five hundred television episodes, and many award-winning films, documentaries, and promotional videos.  He has recorded and produced more than fifteen of his own CDs, including several for the Canadian Naturescapes series distributed world-wide, two jazz trio CDs and many solo piano CDs.  His latest solo project, Birdsong in the Parkade, was recorded with a Steinway grand piano in a Victoria parkade, with original music based on birdsongs collected across Canada.  He has performed with symphony orchestras and rock, jazz, folk, show and country bands throughout the world.  Karel has served for two terms as mayor and now serves in his fifth term as  a councillor in the Highlands.

Ryan Tandy's bass playing is inspired by Ray Brown, informed by Christian McBride, and influenced by Ken Lister, but the solid time and visible enthusiasm he brings to the bandstand are all his own. Born in Auckland, NZ, and raised in Victoria, BC, Ryan played gigs on piano, bass, and drums in high school before going on to establish his career as a bassist. He's been a member of Lust Life Jazz Band since 2009 and appears on their CD "On Remembrance"(2011). In 2012, Ryan joined Nick La Riviere, Art Booker, and Damian Graham in forming New Orleans-inspired funk group The Hi-Fi, who recorded their second EP, "Coffee and Candy", in 2014.An in-demand sideman, Ryan appears alongside local and touring artists. Recent highlights include performances with Maureen Washington, David Vest, Tia Brazda, and Michael Kaeshammer.
