Wardrop and Valdy. Canada and New Zealand harmonize.

Valdy and Graham Wardrop link opposite ends of the Pacific Ocean via the medium of fine song writing, virtuoso guitar playing and tight harmony singing. Individually each is acknowledged in their own countries as soloists performing at the top of their fields - together the combination is both musically rewarding and highly entertaining.

Valdy, who hails from Salt Spring Island, BC, plays major acoustic music festivals all over Canada and the United States. Wardrop lives in Christchurch but these days plays more concerts away than at home - his regular performing circuit includes Australia, Hong Kong, the UK, Papua New Guinea and now, with Valdy, Canada. Valdy and Wardrop met in Auckland in 1994 and realized an instant rapport.

They have now toured five times in Canada, and twice in New Zealand. Valdy was awarded the Order of Canada in 2012 for his services to music and literacy. Wardrop won a New Zealand Star award in 2010 in the ROCKONZ Hall of Fame.

There is nothing that these two well seasoned performers enjoy more than sharing their music with lovers of fine songs and the acoustic guitar.
