string(11) "The Wardens" string(1674) "

The Rocky Mountain-based band’s stories and songs rise from the very land they’ve protected as Canadian national park wardens. With haunting three-part harmonies, chilling tales and evocative photographs, the band’s music blends folk, roots and western styles while reflecting Canada’s protected wilderness areas. This multi award nominated, triple album live band has been selling out events along their 2022 tour!


Following the 2021 release of their third full-length album Sold Out at the Ironwood, band member Ray Schmidt was nominated Traditional Singer of the Year by the Canadian Folk Music Awards. The band has also received numerous regional nominations including Touring Artist of the Year by the BC Touring Council and Album of the Year by Country Music Alberta.
