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.

The band has grown into a focused and exciting group, garnering attention far beyond their traditional bluegrass fan base. From lightning fast and devilishly intricate instrumentals, with 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. Their sophomore album, Coffee Creek, was released in July of this year.
