The Slocan Ramblers


Frank Evans: Banjo Adrian Gross: Mandolin Darryl Poulsen: Guitar Alastair Whitehead: Bass

The Slocan Ramblers are Canada’s young bluegrass band taking the world by storm. Rooted in the tradition yet fearlessly creative, The Slocans have quickly become a leading light of Canada’s roots music scene, built on a reputation for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and their uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan.

This is music intended to make you feel and get you moving. The four piece have talent in abundance and charm overflowing, and we are delighted to welcome them to Belfast for the very first time.

“For a bunch of boys from Toronto, the Slocan Ramblers are turning out a piping hot brand of bluegrass that you just may think was cut fresh from a back porch in the Blue Ridge.” – Elmore Magazine
