Fernie-based ‘stoke-folk’ band Shred Kelly to play Bella Coola Music Festival

The story of Shred Kelly begins as honestly as their music. Friends who met through a local jam-night, and began forming a bond over their love of music and the Great Canadian landscape.

Since their inception, the Fernie, BC based ‘stoke-folk’ band, have garnered themselves sold out shows across Canada, performances at some of the premier festivals, and a growing list of awards and recognition from across the nation. This journey has already been quite a feat for an independent band nestled deep in the Kootenays, but for the indie-rockers and banjo-lovers that follow the tracks of Shred Kelly – they know this is just the beginning.

Shred Kelly are preparing their third album, which will be recorded in June 2014 – and there’s no doubt that the new material will again demonstrate their signature clawhammer banjo riffs, layered ambient synth, powerhouse rock, and sweet vocal harmonies.

While many artists may struggle to capture the energy of a live show in the recording studio, for Shred Kelly – that energy doesn’t only exist on stage. It’s a part of their craft, and while they may resemble laidback BC ski bums – their music is as high-voltage as it can get, and that translates perfectly onto an album, or a packed dance floor.

Shred Kelly will get you moving on the dance floor. Don’t miss their performances at the Bella Coola Music Festival on July 19 and 20, 2014!
