Hailing from Toronto, multi-talented Canadian band The Slocan Ramblers combines impressive bluegrass and old-time musicianship with a fresh approach and modern 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. The Slocan Ramblers have steadily added to their list of awards and plaudits on home ground, and have been making inroads into the USA scene for a while, wowing festival audiences from Merlefest to Rockygrass. Their third album, Queen City Jubilee, was released in June this year, and has already amassed numerous glowing reviews. The Slocan Ramblers blend lightning fast, devilishly intricate instrumentals with evocative vocals, on songs and tunes ranging from fine originals to rowdy old-time numbers. The album was produced by the band’s friend and mentor, acclaimed Canadian musician and songwriter Chris Coole.
“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
Following a warmly received UK tour in autumn 2017, the band is looking forward to returning to build on this success.We’re very much looking forward to welcoming The Slocan Ramblers back to the UK next month!
