Folk icon to play MY Place


Who : Valdy

Where : MY (Millennium) Place

When : Wednesday, Oct. 15, 8 p.m.

Tickets : $16-$20

Blazing across the top of longtime folksinger Valdy’s Web site is the "Aphorism of the day or so:" When I rise up, let me rise up joyful, like a bird. When I fall, let me fall without regret, like a leaf (Wendell Berry).

It should be a more bird-like event when Valdy takes over MY Place this Wednesday. The jovial singer has much to celebrate, having released a double album last month, Viva Valdy: Live at Last, which features live and studio recordings.

Old and new fans of the Canadian folk icon will not want to miss this performance. Call the MY Place box office at 604-935-8410 for more information.
