The Slocan Ramblers
The Slocan Ramblers will take the show at Harbourfront Theatre on May 17 at 7:30 pm. The Slocan Ramblers are a Canadian bluegrass band who were featured on the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, the 2020 IBMA Momentum Awards Band of the Year winner, 2019 JUNO Award nominee and 2023 Canadian Folk Music Awards Ensemble of the Year winner. Rooted in tradition, fearlessly creative and possessing a bold, dynamic sound, The Slocans have become a leading light of today’s acoustic music scene. With a reputation for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and an uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan, The Slocans have been winning over audiences from Merlefest to RockyGrass and everywhere in between. On their most recent album Up the Hill and Through the Fog, the all-star Canadian roots ensemble channels the past three years of personal loss into a surprisingly joyous collection of twelve songs intended to uplift and help make sense of the world. Bluegrass music is nothing short of catharsis for The Slocan Ramblers.
