The Slocan Ramblers are Canada’s young bluegrass band to watch. Rooted in the tradition, fearlessly creative, and possessing a bold, dynamic sound, The Slocans (2015 Edmonton Folk Fest Emerging Artist Award recipients), have quickly become a leading light of Canada’s roots music scene, built on their reputation for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and their uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan.
“The Slocan Ramblers put on one of the most vibrant shows of acoustic music I’ve seen in some time. It’s rare for Canadians (especially young Canadians) to play this music with such authority, passion and yet ability for experimentation. Chops galore, and a handsome bunch of fellas” – Tom Power – Host of CBC’s “q”
“This Canadian quartet captures the breadth and depth of bluegrass that bands in the chilly North aspire to. […] If you’ve grown tired of the same old sounds, here’s a band who reinvents a genre that’s growing through many changes of late.” – Bluegrass Unlimited
