One of North Americas premier bluegrass touring bands
A leading light of the Canada’s roots music scene The Slocan Ramblers have built a reputation for energetic live shows and impeccable musicianship. They blend lightning fast, devilishly intricate instrumentals with evocative vocals on songs ranging from fine originals to rowdy old-time numbers.
In their hometown of Toronto where the crowd is notoriously hard to impress they quickly developed a reputation as a must-see music act. Before long they gate crashed the US circuit with barnstorming shows winning them appearances at major festivals such as Rockygrass and Merlefest reaffirming the seal of approval from peers, die-hards and roots music fans alike.
The released their 3rd album Queen City Jubilee in 2018 – a recording that features them at the top of their game, earning a prestigious Juno Award nomination in the Traditional Roots Album of The Year category to go along with the bands long list of Canadian awards and plaudits.
Uniquely placed to be able to keep traditionalists impressed while also gathering a hip young crowd of followers around them, the Ramblers live shows are legendary affairs that showcase melodic panache, playing ability and style that is second to none.
