Homegrown Canadian bluegrass
The Slocan Ramblers are Canada’s young bluegrass band to watch. Rooted in the tradition, fearlessly creative, and possessing a bold, dynamic sound, The Slocans (2015 Edmonton Folk Fest Emerging Artist Award recipients) have quickly become a leading light of Canada’s roots music scene, built on their reputation for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and their uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan. This is roots music without pretension, music intended to make you feel something, music to get you moving in a crowded bar or listening room. The Slocan Ramblers perform on stage the same way they record: standing up, leaning into the music, and pushing harder and harder for that edge just beyond. They come to Michigan with a stimulating new album, "Coffee Creek."
