Fernie’s favourite folk band is putting on a special holiday concert as part of the 2012 What the Dickens Christmas festival lineup. Shred Kelly will take the stage at The Arts Station on Wednesday, December 12 at 8 p.m. for a free show.

The band will show off songs from their latest full-length album, ‘In the Hills’. The mountain string band has taken their music to the next level, with a new electric shock sound, as they belt out stories of small town love and tragedy in the places they hail from.

Shred Kelly was recently given the honour of 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, that took them from Vancouver to Toronto.

Tickets to the event are free, but there’s only a limited amount available. Just 90 tickets can be picked up at The Arts Station prior to the show. Donations will be welcome, with all of the proceeds going to The Art Station’s Youth Public Art Project.
