Award-winning Canadian bluegrass band The Slocan Ramblers return in September 2022 for their fourth UK tour. Combining superlative musicianship and catchy songs with an appealing stage presence, this sensational quartet has established a stellar worldwide reputation as a barnstorming live band, gigging and touring almost constantly across North America and Europe over the last decade. Their third album, Queen City Jubilee, gained a prestigious 2019 JUNO Award Nomination and won Traditional Album of the Year at the 2020 Canadian Folk Music Awards. The Slocan Ramblers also won the International Bluegrass Music Association’s 2020 Momentum Band Award.
“The band have gained an enviable reputation, creating an audaciously dynamic sound that, whilst firmly rooted in tradition, has never been afraid to push the envelope ” – Folk Radio UK
After an enforced pause due to the pandemic, in 2021 The Slocan Ramblers got back in the studio and their superb brand new album Up The Hill and Through the Fog was released in June 2022 to glowing reviews. They also recommenced touring last summer, and have been busy gigging across the USA and Canada ever since then, including a brief foray to Northern Ireland this May to headline the Bluegrass Omagh festival. The Slocans can’t wait to return to England and Wales this September to wow audiences and share their new music and old favourites. We’ve hosted a couple of sold out concerts for them previously, including a Sheffield gig back in 2018, so we’re thrilled to be bringing this fabulous band back to The Greystones!
