Shelley Chase
Export Buyers
Position: Artistic Director/ Booking Agent
Company: Levee On The Lake /Garrison Hill Entertainment - Sackville, NB, Canada
As an agent, manager, publicist and promoter in East Coast folk artist development for 25 years; Chase has produced shows in wartime Afghanistan for international troops and hauled gear up cliffs in the remote southern shore of Newfoundland. From importing Scottish and Irish acts to the biggest Canadian festivals, to the development of young traditional folk players at home; it’s always about the music. A winner of the coveted ECMA manager of the year award, and nominee for Canadian Folk Music awards as an artist herself, Shelley continues to work in creative ways to establish connections between audiences and artists, wherever that may lead. In 2020 in response to the decimated live music industry she and long time co-collaborator Stacey Read, created Levee on the Lake (ECMA Event of the Year 2021 and three time nominee this year), which three summers later, is still keeping live music on the water, artists and techs paid and audiences buoyed in southern New Brunswick. Chase acts as Artistic Director. The 2022 Levee on the Lake takes place August 18 - 21.
