Live Music Series at Meridian Place

The Downtown Barrie Business Association (BIA) is excited to announce the kickoff of the Live Music Series at Meridian Place. With a beautiful, functional and accessible public space at the heart of Downtown Barrie, Meridian Place offers a sense of cultural depth and welcoming inclusion that celebrates art, activity and positive energy. Nothing does this better than live music under the stars along the beautiful shores of Kempenfelt Bay.

This Friday, July 13, catch the opening act Jeremie Albino at 7:00pm and the headliners Shred Kelly at 8:00pm.

“Though born and raised in Toronto, a yearning for a simpler life led [Jeremie Albino] to beautiful Prince Edward County, where, with a rambling heart, his guitar, and the rusty blues that were buried deep within him, he nurtured and cultivated his sound and soul. With influences of folk music legends that came before him, such as Lightning Hopkins and Skip James, and sounds reminiscent of those you might hear coming from a country porch, Jeremie’s music is the kind that can get your feet tapping and your heart crying all at once. While rooted in a classic folk-country-blues style, his sound is constantly evolving and he brings a real slice of modernity to a style that is slowly slipping away.”

“Soaked in electric crescendos and folk tinged sing-along anthems, Shred Kelly is known for their high energy live show that ignites dance floors with their alternative folk sound. Over three albums and countless tours, the five British Columbians have developed their signature sound by taking inspiration from the mountains where they hail from and the people who inhabit them. Shred Kelly have seamlessly fused traditional instrumentation with modern rock, presenting a sound that is both unique and compelling.”

The Live Music Series at Meridian Place has set the stage to kick off with two amazing performances. Look forward to the second Live Music Series scheduled for Friday, August 17 featuring Lydia Persaud and Donovan Woods.
