The Wardens don’t just sing about the land, they’re part of it.
In haunting three-part harmonies and chilling tales, The Wardens' mountain music rises from land they’ve protected as rangers in the Rocky Mountain national parks. Wrangling grizzly bears, rescuing stranded hikers and lonely nights on the packtrail. It's “the quintessential mountain-culture concert experience.”
With performances equal to the 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.
The Wardens' mountain 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 shared the stage with Blue Rodeo, Paul Brandt, Scenic Route to Alaska and Ian Tyson.
This event is sponsored by Best Western Shelby Inn & Suites, and Shelby Chiropractic.
