Rooted in traditional music yet fearlessly creative, the Slocan Ramblers blend impressive bluegrass virtuosity with a fresh and modern appeal. As leading lights of Canada’s roots music scene, they’ve built on their reputation for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and an uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan.
The band blend lightning fast, devilishly intricate instrumentals with evocative vocals on songs ranging from fine originals to rowdy old-time numbers. Their list of Canadian awards and plaudits is growing, including the 2015 Emerging Artist Award at Edmonton Folk Festival and a Traditional Album of the Year nomination at the 2016 Canadian Folk Music Awards.
The Slocan Ramblers have also been making inroads into the USA roots scene, touring relentlessly across North America over the last few years and winning over festival audiences from Merlefest to Rockygrass.
