Dust off that old neon one piece ski suit and join BC’s Shred Kelly in their hometown ski resort for their epic 80’s themed video for title track Sing To The Night! The band, professional local skiiers Brody McSkimming, Zak Mousseau, Josh McSkimming, and Nakoda Mason, Kootenay based traveling performance group The Circus Act Insomniacs, as well as Fernie extras, suited up in fluorescent one pieces, race pants and headbands for the new video, which premiered on Exclaim yesterday. Be sure to catch the blooper reel at the end – http://bit.ly/1Hs1ZFr. On January 31st the band celebrated the official release of their new album, Sing To The Night, with a hometown show, and now they are on tour from coast to coast. Tickets and tour details can be found a twww.shredkelly.com. Be sure to catch their SKI Reports while they are on the road – check out the first one from Fernie, BC here, eh.

 

Shred Kelly video“The making of the Sing To The Night video was pretty incredible. We had no idea if it would work because the videographer Dylan Siggers had to ski backwards throughout the video down the ski hill to capture it in one shot. He is a wizard though and pulled it off incredibly. Every year in Fernie, there is a day called Hot Dog Day, where everyone dresses in retro ski gear and does hot doggin 80’s ski moves down the mountain. It has been a legendary day in Fernie for years, and we wanted to capture some of that in the video,” says Sage McBride (keyboards and vocals). “A woman in town rents out hot dog day outfits, so between her and other friends in town, we were able to get everyone suited up in some pretty snug fitting suits. The video pretty much features everything that we love most, retro ski gear, ski jumping, hula hooping, and cheesy synchronized dance moves. There are so many hugely talented people in Fernie and we’re so fortunate that they all came together to make this video happen.”

Since their inception, Shred Kelly have been re-defining what “folk music” means in Canada. Tim Newton (banjo, vocals, guitar, lap steel, ukulele), Sage McBride (keyboards and vocals), Jordan Vlasschaert (bass, acoustic guitar), Ian Page-Shiner (drums), and Ty West (guitar) have amplified the traditional sound of folk music with a more contemporary approach. Listed on CBC Music as one of 2015’s most anticipated albums, their 3rd LP – Sing To The Night – released on January 27th has been receiving praise from the likes of Aesthetic Magazine, Exclaim!, and Lithium Magazine.

Catch them on the road this winter!
