High energy folk band Shred Kelly is wrapping up their cross-Canada tour in northern B.C. this week, making a stop in Smithers Friday night before their last show in Prince George.
The band from Fernie is playing at the Dze L K’ant Friendship Centre to promote its newest album Sing to the Night, an eclectic mix of banjo riffs, layered ambient synth, powerhouse rock, and sweet vocal harmonies.
This is Shred Kelly’s first visit to Smithers in two years. The band also played the Kispiox Music Festival five years ago.
“Our fan bases have been growing in the cities, but coming from a small town we definitely love the energy and the vibe that the small town brings out to shows,” said singer and keyboardist Sage McBride, adding their music will be great for dancing.
“It goes through different tempos and different types of emotions are all featured on the album, and the live show is a very dance-able set.”
DJ Chad E-Osee opens the show at 8 p.m., followed by Terrace’s Ranger Dan.
Tickets are available at Dawn 2 Dusk, Hudson Bay Lodge and Mountain Eagle Books.
