Fernie band Shred Kelly is coming back to Golden for a show at the Rockwater on Dec. 14.

Shred Kelly to play Rockwater Show

The East Kootenay’s favourite banjo-wielding band, Shred Kelly, is coming back to Golden.

The East Kootenay’s favourite banjo-wielding band, Shred Kelly, is coming back to Golden for a performance at the Rockwater Grill and Bar on Saturday Dec. 14.

Shred Kelly is a formulation of friends and foot-stomping good times, born in Fernie. The five-piece band is best known for mixing clawhammer banjo riffs with ambient synth, high voltage guitar, fierce drums, and hauntingly sweet vocal harmonies to produce a sound that has been coined “Stoke Folk.”

Their gritty and fun 2010 album “Goodbye July” still resonates strongly with slacker anthems such as I Hate Work, and Ghost Inside My Head. But their latest release “In the Hills” takes their mountain string sound, and adds some electric shock while still belting out stories of small town love and tragedy.

The band was awarded Artist of the Year at the 2012 Kootenay Music Awards, and has entertained crowds in Golden too many times to count.

Locals Willhorse will be the opening act.
