The Slocan Ramblers are Canada’s bluegrass band to watch. Rooted in tradition, fearlessly creative and possessing a bold, dynamic sound, The Slocans have become a leading light of today’s acoustic music scene. With a reputation for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and an uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan, The Slocans have been winning over audiences from Merlefest to RockyGrass and everywhere in between.


On their much-anticipated new album Queen City Jubilee, The Slocans showcase their unique blend of bluegrass, old-time and folk with deep song-writing, lightning fast instrumentals and sawdust-thick vocals. With their trademark raucous energy, this new album presents The Slocan Ramblers at the top of their game – writing and playing tunes to keep you up all night. This is roots music without pretension, music intended to make you feel something – say hello to your new favourite band.


The Slocans are:


Frank Evans: Banjo


Adrian Gross: Mandolin


Darryl Poulsen: Guitar


Alastair Whitehead: Bass


Press


“I love it – smokin’ bluegrass!”


– BBC Radio



  • “If you’ve grown tired of the same old sounds, here’s a band who reinvents a genre.”


    • – Bluegrass Unlimited



“Contemporary bluegrass at its very best. […] Their third album, Queen City Jubilee, could be the one that propels them to the forefront of the acoustic roots scene.”


– Songlines Magazine (UK)


“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”


“Traditional Album of the Year Nominee”


– Canadian Folk Music Awards (2016)


“Emerging Artist Award”


– Edmonton Folk Fest (2015) 


“This is a tight-knit ensemble with a lot of drive, yet with something of a tantalizing “rough edge” to their sound.”


– Sing Out! Magazine


“Effortlessly pushing bluegrass back to its earlier roots in Appalachian traditions, while steering old sounds in fascinating new directions.”


– No Depression


“Top Discoveries From Folk Alliance 2014”


– The Bluegrass Situation


“Top class bluegrass”


– fRoots Magazine (UK)


“They play so fast, so together that there ought to be a warning sign near the stage: “Professional musicians, do not attempt.”


– Saskatoon Star Phoenix
