Hailing from Toronto, multi-talented Canadian band The Slocan Ramblers combine impressive bluegrass and old-time musicianship with a fresh approach and modern appeal and have become a leading light of Canada’s roots music scene, building on their reputation for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and an uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan. The Slocan Ramblers have steadily added to their list of awards and plaudits on home ground, and have been making inroads into the USA scene for a while, wowing festival audiences from Merlefest to Rockygrass. Their third album, Queen City Jubilee, has already amassed numerous glowing reviews. The Slocan Ramblers blend lightning fast, devilishly intricate instrumentals with evocative vocals, on songs and tunes ranging from fine originals to rowdy old-time numbers.
