Shred Kelly @ Vernon Lodge and Conference Centre
Since the inception of Shred Kelly, the Fernie BC based band have been re-defining what folk-rock means. Through their individual pan-Canadian backgrounds, Tim Newton, Sage McBride, Jordan Vlasschaert, Ian Page-Shiner, and Ty West 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 their dynamic, high-energy and engaging live show that leaves no dance floor vacant.

Shred Kelly has garnered themselves 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 won a 2015 Western Canadian Music Award for ‘Best Music Video’ for their latest single ‘Sing to the Night.’

Shawna Caspi Forrest Fire Album Tour @ Record City
Off the heels of a successful fall tour that brought Toronto-based singer-songwriter Shawna Caspi across Canada and the United States in support of her new album Forest Fire, Shawna will be travelling across Canada once again visiting British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Quebec.
Shawna performs solo, but there's a whole band under her fingertips. A mighty singer, a story sculptor, and a truth teller, she has toured across Canada and the United States and believes in poetry and the power of one person and one instrument. Shawna’s vocals are brewed by years of classical training followed by years on the road finding her own voice singing folk songs. She combines power, intensity, character, and closeness. Her performances capture audiences with grace and intimacy whether the setting is a living room, a festival stage, or the bar car of a passenger train.
