Veteran performers to share stage

It will be a blending of musical styles at the Contenders, Valdy and Gary Fjellgaard perform in Summerland.

It will be a blending of musical styles at the Contenders, Valdy and Gary Fjellgaard perform in Summerland later this month as part of an Okanagan tour.

This is the 13th year the two of them have been performing together.

“I think we’re just continuing with a tradition here,” Fjellgaard said. “We just seem to have more energy as the years go by.”

The two veteran performers bring vastly different musical styles to the stage.

Valdy is a folk performer while Fjellgaard is a country and roots music performer.

“We’re complete opposites with the music,” Fjellgaard said.

While the two continue to perform new music each year, Fjellgaard said he will perform some of his older songs which some in the audience have not heard before.

One of the songs, Rock and Roll Dreams, was written many years ago but still describes his relationship with his music.

The Summerland concert is at Centre Stage Theatre on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are available at Martin’s Flowers in Summerland and at The Dragon’s Den in Penticton.
