The Slocan Ramblers
Dynamic, entertaining bluegrass from Canada
Frank Evans: Banjo
Adrian Gross: Mandolin
Darryl Poulsen: Guitar
Alastair Whitehead: Bass
The Slocan Ramblers are Canada’s young bluegrass band to watch. Rooted in the tradition, fearlessly creative, and possessing a bold, dynamic sound they blend lightning fast, devilishly intricate instrumentals with the evocative vocals of singer Frank Evans, who takes the lead on songs ranging from fine originals to rowdy old-time numbers. The Slocans have been winning over audiences across the water in Canada ans the USA. See them here first – presenting 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, sawdust-thick vocals and trademark raucous energy.
Their list of Canadian awards and plaudits includes the Emerging Artist Award (Edmonton Folk Fest 2015) and Traditional Album of the Year Nominee (Canadian Folk Music Awards 2016). They have also been making inroads into the USA acoustic scene for quite some time (“one of the top discoveries From Folk Alliance 2014”– The Bluegrass Situation) and the UK is starting to catch on!
