Dynamic, entertaining bluegrass from Canada
Late October/early November 2019
Hailing from Toronto, multi-talented Canadians The Slocan Ramblers combine impressive bluegrass musicianship with a fresh approach and contemporary appeal. In the last few years the quartet has become a leading light of Canada’s roots music scene, building on their reputation for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and an uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan. Their third album, Queen City Jubilee, was released in June 2018, and has already amassed numerous glowing reviews. The band blends devilishly intricate instrumentals with evocative vocals, on songs and tunes ranging from fine originals to rowdy old-time numbers.
“Contemporary bluegrass at its very best….their new album, Queen City Jubilee, could be the one that propels them to the forefront of the acoustic roots scene.” – Songlines magazine
The Slocan Ramblers will return to the UK in late 2019 after a hugely successful autumn 2018 tour which saw them play to packed-out rooms across the country. Here are just a couple of the glowing comments we received from punters and promoters:
This band are the business….a real fresh approach to playing American folk music, including traditional as well as self penned material. (concert-goer, Bradford on Avon)
The band’s performance was exceptional, folk are still talking about it here and I’d love to get them back next time. (promoter, St Davids)
We are now planning the Slocans’ return in October/November 2019, when they will combine a mini tour of Northern Ireland with a handful of dates in the rest of the UK. Grab your chance to book this outstanding band, contact us now for availability.
