Welcome

  • I am having the time of my life playing my new duo show, ROOTS & GROOVES. with brilliant young keyboardist Nico Rhodes. You have to see this young man in action, he is literally bursting at the seams with music! And it is so great for me to revitalize old songs, some from as far back as Pied Pumkin! Now booking shows for the fall and winter, here is a clip from the Victoria Folk Club.  https://youtu.be/faoXtfrOWdU

    This intergenerational collaboration has been decades in the making! Nico wrote me a fan letter when he was 8 and at age 23 orchestrated my music for symphony (see a tiny clip at http://blackpress.tv/video.php?id=20641). 

    Nico will be busy musical directing summer and Christmas shows at Chemainus Theatre Festival so we'll be performing ROOTS & GROOVES in September and October and only a few times in the summer, Let us know if you'd like to host a show or house concert!

    May 5 I will host Fiddelium, an evening with 100 young fiddlers from Cross Canada Fiddle, at the Port Theatre in Nanaimo.

    June 3 in Vancouver I join Fred Penner, Charlotte Diamond and Norman Foote in a special concert celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Vancouver Children's Festival then head over to Gallery Bistro in Port Moody for an intimate dinner show. JUne 6 I will do a solo concert at the Jericho Folk Club, a couple of blocks from where Valley grew up.

    June 25 I have the honour of performing at the first Young Audience Day at the Sechelt Festival of the Written Arts!

    Congratulations Valley Hennell and Kari Burk for winning a 2016 Academics' Choice Award for 'Snapshot of a Soul Place in the land of special needs' which has already been honoured with 2016 Family Choice and National Parenting Products (NAPPA) Awards.
