FRIDAY OCTOBER 20. The Wardens (Banff, Alberta)
plus opener Horizon Ridge
With performances equal to their mastery of the ranger trade, The Wardens - Scott Ward, Bradley Bischoff and Ray Schmidt - are a Banff National Park-based trio whose stories rise from the very land they’ve protected for the past 60+ years.
Their music - blending folk, roots and western styles - is a piece of Canadiana reflecting the pristine wilderness of the Rocky Mountains. The trio have performed at Folk Alliance International, Canmore Folk Fest, Alberta Showcase and have shared the stage with Blue Rodeo, Paul Brandt, Scenic Route to Alaska, and Tim Hus.
"The quintessential mountain-culture concert experience."
Jamie Bliss, Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine - 2016
