Since its inception, Shred Kelly, the Fernie, BC, based band has been re-defining folk-rock. Through their individual pan-Canadian backgrounds, they have amplified the traditional sound of folk music with a more contemporary approach. Pushing the boundaries of the genre, they have incorporated a wide range of influences to create a sound that is uniquely called ‘Stoke Folk.’ The band is best known for dynamic, high-energy and engaging live shows that always fill the dance floor.Matt-Kuhn-Press-Photo

Shred Kelly has rocked sold-out shows across Canada, performed at some of the nation’s premier festivals, and received a growing list of awards and recognition. They recently won ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Best Live Act’ at 2015 Kootenay Music Awards and a 2015 Western Canadian Music Award for ‘Best Music Video’ for their latest single Sing to the Night.

Shred Kelly’s third album Sing To The Night shows the growth and depth the band has explored throughout the creative process, and once again demonstrates their signature claw-hammer banjo riffs, layered ambient synth, powerhouse rock, and sweet vocal harmonies. CBC Music named Sing to the Night among the “Top 15 Most Anticipated Albums of 2015”.

Tim Newton – banjo, cello banjo, vocals, guitar, ukulele
