Happy New Year Shreddies!
I would have updated this yesterday, but I was piecing together the events of New Years Eve in a world of pain, running over my resolutions while pounding back a huge plateful of fries. Was there really a band of women dressed as men and a man wearing a tutu? Luckily, I think so. (Thanks to Blackberry Wood and Oxygen Orkestar) Thank you to Paul and the staff of the Royal on Baker in Nelson for throwing one rad New Years Eve Party.
While overindulging in fried food I had the unique opportunity to reflect on the highs and lows of 2011. SO so many highs. Too many to list. So instead we'll condense that section by saying - playing many amazing shows and festivals, meeting many incredible musicians, and getting to spend time with some of the most generous people in the world who open their doors to us and endlessly support us on our musical journey. We feel so lucky to be living our dream.
For the amount of time on the road, we really have had only a few moments of pain and suffering - Tim drank some bad water, and had a beaver fever baby, we hit a antlered animal outside Saskatoon, jack-knifed the trailer, ran out of gas a few times, had a few tantrums, but all in all it was a good year.
Thank you friends, family and fans for another great year. See you in 2012!
Love, Shred Kelly.
