The Wardens


Reflecting over 65 years of mountain adventure, The Wardens – Bradley Bischoff, Scott Ward and Ray Schmidt – share original songs and stories about the history and traditions of Canada’s National Park Warden Service.

Superb musicianship, haunting vocals and chilling tales from three men who spent their careers in the most rugged of all places. The Wardens bring it. Blood, sweat and tears of bygone days in Banff and Jasper. True tales from these Men for the Mountains.

“Their performance will leave you with a taste of the danger, adventure and cowboy ruggedness of life as a park warden” – Banff Crag and Canyon, Banff AlbertaThe Wardens
