Valdy is an icon of the Canadian folk scene who brings his own rich catalogue of his original compositions such as "Rock & Roll Song", "A Good Song" and "Simple Life" together with other classics of the genre that he has made his own such as "Renaissance" by David Bradstreet, "Yes I Can" by Bob Ruzicka and "Sonny's Dream" by Ron Hynes.
