Shred Kelly at the Legion
Tuesday August 28, 2018  |  8:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Legion 43, 1116 6th Avenue

Doors @ 7pm
Show @ 8pm
Cover - $15

Pre-sale tickets will be available online as of Friday June 15th, as well as in-person at Handsome Cabin Boy Tattoo.

Soaked in electric crescendos and folk tinged sing-along anthems, Shred Kelly is known for their high energy live show that ignites dance floors with their alternative folk sound. Over three albums and countless tours, the five British Columbians have developed their signature sound by taking inspiration from the mountains they hail from and the people who inhabit them. Shred Kelly has seamlessly fused traditional instrumentation with modern rock, presenting a sound that is both unique and compelling.

Shred Kelly has produced their most ambitious project yet with their fourth album Archipelago. The collaborative song writing of Tim Newton, Sage McBride, Jordan Vlasschaert, and Ty West have pulled inspiration through individual experiences and musical influences. The result is a dynamic and cohesive collection of dreamy, yet explosively exciting songs dipped in themes of relationships and the world in the modern age. Using traditional instrumentation at the base of the songwriting, the album explodes into a symphony of sounds incorporating banjos, ukuleles, synthesizers, guitar hooks, harmonies and pulsing beats.

Their high-energy sound has allowed them to perform at many Canadian and international festivals, such as: NXNE, Reeperbahn, Winnipeg Folk Festival, Breakout West, Riverfest Elora, Ottawa Blues Fest, Shambhala, Evolve, Tall Tree Music Festival, Keloha and Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival.

The group has also achieved a growing list of awards and recognition; five Kootenay Music Awards, one Western Canadian Music Award, over one million spotify plays, CBC recognition and media attention in Canada, USA, and Germany.

“On the new album ‘Archipelago’ (Shred Kelly’s) energy is captured and this alone is an achievement. This quintet is playing blissfully, sky-high jubilation and enthusiastic folk rock…” (Rolling Stone Magazine, DE)

“(Archipelago) is a very relatable album that you will have on repeat for weeks.” (CHSR FM)

“Their shows are joyous celebrations of life that will only reaffirm most of the things you love about music.” (Rice and Bread Magazine)

This a-peel-ing event celebrates the mighty spud, a vegetable the Huble family once grew by the acre!

Over one hundred years ago, on the banks of the Fraser River, Annie Huble grew acres and acres of potatoes which she sold to travelers passing through the area. Today that tradition continues at Huble Homestead, where you can learn all about the heirloom potato varieties grown on site, see the garden where they were produced, and purchase your own to sample at home!

Venture out to Huble Homestead, where the spud reigns supreme! We’ve spent the summer growing different varieties of heirloom potatoes, offering you the perfect opportunity to learn more about them, as well as see, touch, and perhaps buy some!

Revert back to your childhood by taking part in potato sack races, Hot Potato, or the potato and spoon race, get creative with potato stamps, and show the crowd how it’s done in the potato peeling contest. Kick back, relax on the grass or in the shade, and enjoy the line-up of spud-tacular musicians, a special starchy lunch menu, and guided tours on what is guaranteed to be a totally tub(er)ular event!

Huble Homestead Historic Site is a 30 minute drive north of Prince George, BC. Leave the city behind, and make your way up Highway 97, before turning off on Mitchell Road to continue another 6 kilometres down a well-maintained dirt road.

Huble Homestead is dog friendly and open daily for guided tours and shopping in the General Store. Enjoy a picnic or purchase lunch from the BBQ as you relax in the fresh air. Admission is by donation, with a recommended amount of $10.00 per family.
