The Wardens
THE WARDENS

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 theyve 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 widely across western Canada and from Alaska to California. They've performed at Folk Alliance International, Canmore Folk Festival's main stage and shared the stage with Blue Rodeo, Pharis & Jason Romero and Ian Tyson.

BRADLEY BISCHOFF
Vocals, lead and rhythm guitar

Stationed in the rugged South Boundary region of Jasper National Park, Bradley began his national park warden lifestyle in 1981.

Assigned alone to the backcountry with a handful of horses for seventeen days at a time, Bradley penned many songs by the dim cabin lights and the dusky summers spent in the high alpine ranges.  

Bradley was a founding member of the popular Alberta Swing/Rockabilly band The Free Rangers. With The Wardens, he combines his melodic vocals and smooth lead licks with his mountain roots.  

RAY SCHMIDT
Vocals, upright bass, mandolin

Currently posted in Rogers Pass, British Columbia, Ray works with grizzly bears in the interior rainforest of Glacier National Park.

Ray founded The Wardens in 2009 with Scott Ward during the national park warden centennial after discovering the rich depth of music and stories within this region of Canada.

Translating the high lonesome sound of the Kentucky hills to those of the Rocky Mountains, Ray's vocals amplify the spirit of The Wardens' Mountain music.

SCOTT WARD
Vocals, fingerstyle guitar

A national park warden for over 30 years in Banff National Park, Scott's music stems from a life lived in the deep wilderness of the Canadian Rockies as a horseman, search-and-rescue dog handler and technical alpine specialist.

Evoking the haunting fingerstyle guitar of Gordon Lightfoot with the mystique and presence of Ian Tyson, Scott's music embodies Canadian authenticity.

In 2001, Scott was awarded the Governor General' s Award for Exemplary Service as a Peace Officer.
