The weather may be cold but that just means it’s time again for the Shivering Songs Music Festival! This festival, already in it’s sixth year, has become a huge hit in a relatively short time. With venues all around the city, the festival boasts a warm community feel while showcasing some established and up and coming artists from musical and literary backgrounds.
The festival was originally conceived as a small folk festival to celebrate the album release of local group The Olympic Symphonium but has since blossomed into a landmark cultural event that garners the attention of music and literary fans throughout Atlantic Canada and the Northeastern United States.
This is a midwinter celebration utilizing interesting locations such as The Wilmot United Church, a piece of history in downtown Fredericton, The Charlotte Street Arts Centre, originally a six room schoolhouse built in 1884 and The Fredericton Boyce Farmers Market, recognized as one of the nation’s best community markets. There are also a number of other amazing venues including The Capital Bar and even Fredericton’s Urban Almanac General Store.
This year some featured musicians will be, Joel and Bill Plaskett, Shane Koyczan, Jenn Grant, Fortunate Ones and much much more!
