The Slocan Ramblers are Canada’s young bluegrass band to watch. Rooted in tradition with fearless creativity, they possess a bold, dynamic sound, and have built a reputation for energetic live shows. Impeccable musicianship, blending lightning fast and devilishly intricate instrumentals with smooth vocals, they put on a vibrant show of acoustic music. The 4 players on banjo, mandolin, guitar and bass hail from the hipster streets of Toronto, and have toured all over Canada, the USA, and the UK, to rave reviews. This is one of Canada’s best bluegrass bands and they stay true to the roots of the music.
