The Slocan Ramblers in concert at Meltham

About the event

Exceptional Canadian quartet The Slocan Ramblers have built a worldwide reputation as a storming live band, based on energetic performances and impeccable musicianship on banjo, mandolin, acoustic guitar and double bass.

Winners of the International Bluegrass Music Association’s 2020 Momentum Band Award and the Canadian Folk Music Awards’ 2020 Traditional Album of the Year, they also received a prestigious JUNO Award nomination in 2019. The band's fourth album was released in June 2022 to glowing reviews, and blends bluegrass, folk and Americana to dazzling effect.

The four band members are all hugely skilled instrumentalists, with sparkling vocal harmonies adding to that classic bluegrass feel. Three previous UK tours have seen the Slocan Ramblers perform to sold-out rooms across the country, and after an enforced hiatus due to the pandemic in 2020, the award-winning Toronto band is raring to return to these shores in September 2022.
