Dynamic, entertaining bluegrass from Canada
The Slocan Ramblers return in Aug/Sep 2020!
Popular Canadian bluegrass band The Slocan Ramblers will return to the UK in late summer 2020 for their fourth tour here. Combining impressive musicianship with a fresh contemporary appeal, the quartet has become a leading light of Canada’s roots music scene, and is establishing a growing reputation as a storming live band in the USA, Ireland and the UK. Their third album, Queen City Jubilee (2018) has amassed glowing reviews and a prestigious 2019 JUNO Award Nomination for Traditional Roots Album of the Year.
“Contemporary bluegrass at its very best…Queen City Jubilee could be the one that propels them to the forefront of the acoustic roots scene.” – Songlines magazine
The Slocan Ramblers were also nominated for a coveted Band Momentum Award by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) in 2019 and were an official showcase artist at the IBMA’s major conference and festival in North Carolina in September, performing to great acclaim in the bluegrass heartlands. Another successful UK tour in autumn 2019 has seen them play to many sold-out rooms once again, including almost a week in Northern Ireland on this run. With many places clamouring to have the band back as soon as possible, we’re booking a late August/early September 2020 tour, so that we can bring The Slocan Ramblers to some UK festivals for the first time, as well as to conventional venues throughout the country. A storming live band that your audiences will love!
