shred kellyThe Summerfolk Music and Crafts Festival is partnering with BC-based band Shred Kelly to present a pay-what-you-can virtual concert on Saturday February 27th at 7pm. The show will stream live on Facebook and tickets are available through the Summerfolk website.

Shred Kelly is a five piece, alternative folk rock band that emerged from the heart of the Canadian Rockies in 2009. The band played Summerfolk in 2015 and turned heads with their high-energy performances. They recently released their fifth album ‘Like A Rising Sun’.

“They were a very young band when they first played Summerfolk”, said Summerfolk’s Artistic Director James Keelaghan. “They shook the walls of the Down By The Bay stage and they’ve only gotten better since then”.

The virtual concert on February 27th is part of a month long virtual tour. Shred Kelly have partnered with festivals across the country to offer virtual performances. All of the shows will air on Shred Kelly's Facebook page and the Facebook pages of two featured festivals. The February 27th concert is co-presented by Summerfolk and the Newfoundland Folk Festival.

“We’re looking forward to co-hosting a shred virtual set with The Newfoundland Folk Festival. It’s going to be an interesting chat room”, Keelaghan added. Audiences can tune in for free but are encouraged to purchase a ticket to support Shred Kelly, the production team, and each festival during a challenging time for the music industry. In addition, 25% of proceeds will be donated to Protect Our Winters Canada, a non-profit helping outdoor recreation enthusiasts advocate for climate protection.
