Shred Kelly is a formulation of friends and foot stompin’ good times born in the East Kootenay. Hailing from the town of Fernie, the five-piece band is best known for mixing clawhammer banjo riffs that tear the fabric of space and time with high voltage guitars, fierce drums, and hauntingly sweet harmonies to produce a sound that has been properly coined “stoke folk.” Singing songs about powder days, tornado destruction and a sincere distaste for work, these ski bums are consistently turning doubters into sweaty folk rock believers on the dance floor.
