Gary Fjellgaard

Biography:

Born on the Canadian prairies in Rose Valley, Saskatchewan, Gary Fjellgaard moved west to Prince George B.C. as a teenager and got his first break in show business when he barnstormed with the Hall of Famer Evan Kemp & his B.C. Trailriders. However reality was a chainsaw during the week and a guitar on the weekends to support his growing family. These blue-collar years became a basis for many of Gary's songs.

In 1970 music became his full-time occupation. Since then, he has taken his music to the people with a rare sincerity, baring his soul in each and every live appearance and recording session. His western roots music has survived categorization, and a move further west to Gabriola Island brought a universal quality to his songwriting. As one writer put it: "His music is so rich that his art is free of bitterness, Whining, self pity and manufactured pathos." His strong sense of self worth has always meant that his songs ring true as the man himself.

As a champion of vanishing values and frontier spirit, Gary's songs about lone horsemen riding through verdant valleys and along moonlit mountainside trails are not fabricated solely from his imagination. He keeps in touch with his roots riding cattle drives and entertaining at Cowboy gatherings across North America. Gary has also played with some world - class musicians over the years, his shows range from the intimacy of the small theatre to the excitement of mainstage appearances at Canada's top festivals.

An award winning performer, Gary Fjellgaard's accomplishments include a 1993 Juno for Country Male Vocalist, 3 Single of the Year awards, 4 Composer of the Year awards and 3 Album of the Year awards among many others.
