Shred Kelly bring brand new sound back to Lethbridge

E-mail Print PDF

 Shred Kelly packed the house and the Owl Acoustic Lounge Dance floor with a brand new sound and a trumpet, Jan. 20.

 I caught the second half of their show, during which they showed they have moved away from their more traditional bluegrass/ upbeat folk roots to a more of a high octane indie-rock sound.Shred Kelly returned to Lethbridge with a new sound. Photo by Richard Amery

Keyboardist/ accordionist Sage McBride was singing as I stepped in. Coupled with some blasting ska tinged trumpet playing, McBride’s voice helped give the band a No Doubt with a banjo sound.

 Their unstoppable beat and big bass kept the joint hopping. And they saved their crowd favourites from the end of their show. They had the audience singing along with “I Hate Work” and cheering during “Tornado,” as they whirled across the dance floor.
