FREDERICTON FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES 6 ARTISTS IN ADVANCE OF 8TH EDITION

Shivering Songs is excited to share an impressive initial line-up for its 2018 edition: Bahamas, David Myles, Catherine MacLellan, Sandro Perri, Hillsburn, and festival founders The Olympic Symphonium. Now celebrating its eighth edition, Shivering Songs runs January 18-21, 2018 in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

Shivering Songs 2018 passes are on sale now. Individual tickets for all artists listed herein will go on sale Friday November 3 at www.shiveringsongs.com. Shivering Songs previously announced that $1 from each ticket or pass sold in 2017-2018 will be donated to the United Way of Central of New Brunswick’s annual fundraising campaign.

Festival organizers are particularly excited about this year’s initial roster: “We jumped at the opportunity to grow and include a Tuesday album release show with Bahamas, one of the most in-demand acts in the country,” said Shivering Songs co-organizer Zach Atkinson. “We’re so thrilled to present them at the Festival alongside David Myles, Catherine Maclellan, Sandro Perri, and so many other voices of this next generation of the Canadian songwriting tradition.”

As part of Bahamas’ Earthtones release tour, Shivering Songs will present additional shows in Moncton (Jan 14 @ Capitol Theatre) and Saint John (Jan 15 @ Imperial Theatre). Recorded between Los Angeles and Prague, the album features Pino Palladino and James Gadson, the famed rhythm section of D’Angelo & The Vanguard, who’ve also played with Elton John, Beck, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Simon & Garfunkel, and countless other iconic artists.

"While the music is beyond comparison, the secret weapon of Shivering Songs is certainly their gorgeous space," said award winning local architect and past performer, John Leroux. "It's an incredible feeling being in a historic treasure that's so full of music and life, where the 19th century and the 21st dovetail perfectly.”

A midwinter celebration of songwriting and storytelling, and flagship partner of Fredericton’s FROSTival, Shivering Songs hosts internationally renowned artists in historic and intimate spaces throughout Downtown Fredericton.
