Shred Kelly gets toes tapping and hands clapping

 During their first song during their March 3 show at the Slice, they had half of the sold out crowd on their feet, frenetically dancing.

 By the end of their intense, energetic two straight hour show they had a lot more on the dance floor and the remainder at least nodding their heads, clapping their hands and tapping their toes in their seats.

 As usual  with the Fernie based bluegrass/ folk/ rock band, there was plenty of finger-bleeding banjo picking.

Sage McBride beamed ear-to-ear as she pounded her tambourine and alternatedon keyboards while addingsome superb jazz tinged vocals, lending a little melodic contrast to the rougher, more rock inspired vocals of banjo/ guitar player Tim Newton.

They started off flying on their first song, ‘Lessons Learned,’ and barely slowed down through crowd favourites like ‘Goodbye July’ plus a few new songs to be recorded for their next CD.
They wound down their show with a drinking song called ’Falling Down.’
