Shred Kelly will offer listeners a “foot stomping good time” at the summer Oldstice Street Festival in Olds this weekend.

The five-piece roots band from Fernie, B.C., will perform in “Uptowne Olds” on Saturday, June 22. With an energetic piano, clawhammer banjo, ambient synth, guitar and drums, and the group’s sweet vocal harmonies, Shred Kelly produces a sound described as “stoke folk.”

The band that put out the acclaimed release In the Hills, is on a Canadian tour that will stop in Central Alberta en route to Newfoundland. Shred Kelly took home the Artist of the Year designation from the 2012 Kootenay Music Awards and was recently nominated for four more 2013 awards.
