Shelder the Electric Clamfish
Shelder the Electric Clamfish is a multi-instrumentalist and storyteller hailing from the Southern Gulf Islands of British Columbia, now residing in Halifax. She performs her eclectic-art-folk compositions on accordion and ukulele, drawing inspiration from her travels as a nomadic musician and from historical Canadian legends and folk tales. Shelder has incorporated traditional East-coast music into her own compositions, blending something familiar with something totally new.
Forget every folk cliche and overplayed chord progression you’ve ever been distracted by – Shelder the Electric Clamfish has just given the genre a thorough shake down and uplift (yet again) with her relentless imagination and untamed musical curiosity.
