Superb musicianship, haunting harmonies and chilling tales from three men who spent their lives in the most rugged of all places - the wilderness of Canada's mountain national parks.
Protecting grizzly bears, rescuing stranded hikers and lonely nights on the packtrail, these mountain men share a special blend of music and storytelling from Canada's richest wilderness. 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 Tim Hus.
