Valdy to play some rock ’n’ roll songs at WECC
CANADIAN folk institution Valdy is returning to the West End Cultural Centre, where he was one of the first performers to play 25 years ago.
The singer/songwriter is scheduled for a two-set performance Sept. 21 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door and are available at the West End Cultural Centre, Ticketmaster, Music Trader and Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store.
Valdy’s recent recordings include Contenders (a collaborative series with friend and fellow singer/songwriter Gary Fjellgaard) and the solo release, Viva Valdy: Live at Last! (a two-CD package, one live, one studio, with a total of 25 tunes, and a lyric booklet). A new CD, Read Between the Lines, has just been released for the summer of 2012
