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 last September, performing to great acclaim in the bluegrass heartlands. Another successful UK tour in Oct/Nov 2019 saw them play to many sold-out rooms once again, including a week’s tour of Northern Ireland . With many places clamouring to have the band back as soon as possible, we’re in the middle of booking late August/early September 2020 tour dates, so that we can bring The Slocan Ramblers to some UK festivals for the first time, as well as to a variety of venues throughout the country. This is a simply storming live band that your audiences will love!
Now booking for late August to mid September 2020. Please contact us for availability.
