Valdy is the winner of two Juno Awards for Folk Singer of the Year and Folk Entertainer of the Year, and has received seven additional Juno nominations. His fourteen albums have achieved sales of nearly half a million copies, four of which are certified gold.[4] Of Canadian folk artists in the mid-1970s, only Gordon Lightfoot was more popular.[2]

His music was featured in the Steve McQueen film The Getaway. Valdy also appeared on the CBC TV show The Beachcombers as the environmental activist "Halibut" Stu. He also managed to secure a part in the reunion production of The New Beachcombers performing a song he wrote, "It's The Water," as part of a jug band.

Valdy lives on Saltspring Island in British Columbia, in a lake front home with his wife Kathleen Mary Fraser Horsdal, who is his creative advisor and is also a sculptor, a painter, a hospice counselor, a high school teacher, a chef and a drama coach, and their three dogs and one cat. His daughter by Lindsay WhalenChelah Horsdal, is an actress. He also has two adopted sons by a previous marriage to Penny Christie: Theo Horsdal and Yani Horsdal.

His live albums include Family Gathering (A&M) recorded at Massey Hall in Toronto for 1974 release, and 2003's Viva Valdy: Live at Last (Rack-On-Tour). In 1986, Valdy made a special guest appearance as himself in the popular 1980's Canadian children's television show, Today's Special (episode entitled: "trash"). Valdy continues to regularly tour across Canada.

On November 21, 2005, Valdy was awarded the National Achievement Award by SOCAN at the 2005 SOCAN Awards in Toronto. [5]
