The Shivering Songs music festival has been steadily growing in Fredericton for the past 9 years. What initially began as an album release party for alternative band The Olympic Symphonium has now become a week-long, multi-venue festival that showcases the talent of 50 diverse artists.

Brendan MaGee works alongside his four co-organizers to host Shivering Songs every year. This year’s festival has been the most successful so far, selling out of the weekend passes in record speed.

MaGee says the idea for Shivering Songs came from the lack of musical performances in the colder months. “We wanted to break up the cold winter months and add something special, I think we’ve been successful at doing that,” said MaGee.

Two of the most highly anticipated artists are Wolastoqiyik musician Jeremy Dutcher and Vancouver singer-songwriter Dan Mangan. Dutcher will be performing two shows, one of which will be on the St. Thomas University campus with free admission.

St. Thomas University has been a Shivering Songs sponsor since day one. MaGee says he hopes that students will make a larger appearance this year as there are several shows available free of charge and on campus.
