"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…""

Tom Power - CBC's Deep Roots and Radio 2 Morning

The Slocan Ramblers formed in 2009 and is comprised of Frank Evans (banjo), Adrian Gross (mandolin), Darryl Poulsen (guitar) and Alastair Whitehead (bass). The band began as a fun project for the four young musicians who were passionate about bluegrass music. They started out playing casual pub gigs but quickly became a staple of Toronto's thriving acoustic music scene. Since then, The Slocan Ramblers have transcended their bar-gig roots, performing at many of Canada's largest folk and jazz festivals, as well as opening for Grammy-award-winner Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers. With a long list of shows across Canada this summer, they are expanding their roots and bringing their brand of bluegrass west.

The band has grown into a focused and exciting group, garnering attention far beyond their traditional bluegrass fan base. From blistering fast picking and sparkling vocal harmonies to the haunting melody of an old waltz, The Slocan Ramblers have something for everyone.

The Slocan Ramblers released their debut album, Shaking Down the Acorns, in 2012 and are soon to release their second.
