Blending bluegrass with folk and roots music, The Slocan Ramblers sound like they’re from the hills or the heartland of the United States. But in fact, they’re Canadian.
Channeling working-class heroes like Woody Guthrie, The Slocans deliver some pretty hard-to-forget tunes.
Groundhog is a delightfully delicious ode to the joys of backwoods dining. Angeline is a plaintive love song to the girl back home. Desperate-sounding and full of dark imagery, The Law and The Lonesome is a landscape of bad choices and wrong turns.
Whether lending their talents to old favorites or original compositions, The Slocan Ramblers are not-to-be-missed for fans of folk and bluegrass.
You’ll like this show if you like bluegrass, folk, acoustic or roots music. Woody Guthrie. The banjo or mandolin. This show is not for you if you are not a fan of bluegrass or folk music.
