The Slocan Ramblers (2021)

Dynamic, entertaining bluegrass from Canada

FURTHER UPDATE – as at March 2021, we have now once again cancelled the proposed Slocan Ramblers dates due to ongoing uncertainty around transatlantic touring.  

Popular Canadian bluegrass band The Slocan Ramblers will return to the UK in early autumn 2021 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.

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 year, performing to great acclaim in the bluegrass heartlands. Their latest UK tour in Oct/Nov 2019 saw them play to many sold-out rooms across the country, including a week’s tour of Northern Ireland. With many places clamouring to have the band back as soon as possible, we were in the middle of booking late August/early September 2020 tour dates, but are now re-scheduling these dates to September 2021. This is a simply storming live band that your audiences will love!
