Canada Day is a week away and the City of Fernie has put together an exciting line up of entertainers to keep crowds dancing all day long.

Local ski-bum, folk rockers Shred Kelly, will be the headlining act for the day.

The six-piece band is best known for mixing banjo riffs with a ghostly mandolin, high voltage guitars, fierce drums, and hauntingly sweet harmonies to produce a sound that has been properly coined “Stoke Folk.”

The line up for Canada Day also includes several familiar acts like Back in Blues, the Bickertons, Danger Floyd, and Relief Committee.
