Shred Kelly will be performing in Golden to kick off their second CD.

Things get shredded at the Rockwater in Golden

On September 29 Shred Kelly will be performing at the Rockwater Grill and Bar.

On September 29 Shred Kelly will be bringing their riffs to the Rockwater Grill and Bar in Golden as part of the a new CD release called “In The Hills”.

The band is a formulation of friends and foot stomping good times that was born in the East Kootenay’s of British Columbia.

Hailing from the town of Fernie, the band is made up of a five piece band and is best known for mixing clawhammer banjo riffs. The music has the ability to tear the fabric of space and time with a mix of ambient synth, high voltage guitar, fierce drums, and hauntingly sweet vocal harmonies.

The bands 2010 album “Goodbye July” still resonates strongly with boot slappin’ slacker anthems such as “I Hate Work” and “Ghost Inside My Head”. In The Hills takes a look at the mountain string band and adds a cup of electric shock while consistently belting out stories of small town love and tragedy in the places they hail from.

The band was awarded 2012 Artist of the Year at the Kootenay Music Awards and won a spot on the Green Couch Sessions/CBC Radio 3 ‘Tracks on Tracks’ train adventure from Vancouver to Toronto.

Shred Kelly is turning banjo doubters into sweaty indie folk rock believers on the dance floor, one town at a time.
