Slocan Ramblers

Joe Kendrick

The Slocan Ramblers hail from Toronto, Canada. Their debut album Queen City Jubilee  was a 2019 Juno Award Nominee for Traditional Roots Album of the Year. WNCW's Joe Kendrick caught up with them during a busy week of bluegrass and more at last month's IBMA festival in Raleigh. The Slocans are: Frank Evans: Banjo, Adrian Gross: Mandolin, Darryl Poulsen: Guitar, Alastair Whitehead: Bass

We've got bluegrass all the way from Ontario, Canada in a session with the Slocan Ramblers, who were in the area last month for Jam in the Trees. Reed Turchi and the Kudzu Choir were at Jam in the Trees, too, and they joined us in Studio B to play tunes from the new album Just A Little More Faith. Join Kim Clark this Sunday at 7pm for Studio B Rewind.

Time goes on, life moves forward, roots grow, leaves sprout and branches grow up and out reaching for new heights... new places.  That's what The Tall Grass is all about... roots music that grows and morphs into many different kinds of sound and song. This week Joe Greene brings us music from Claire Lynch, Slocan Ramblers, Love Canon, David Benedict and lots more. Take a stroll in The Tall Grass, every Sunday at 6pm, on WNCW 88.7 and wncw.org.

Slocan Ramblers Live Friday August 24th between 4 and 5pm

They're one of our favorite new Appalachian-inspired stringbands, and they're from Toronto, Ontario! The Slocan Ramblers' latest album Queen City Jubilee has fast become one of our favorites of the year, and they are in the area for this weekend's Jam in the Trees in Black Mountain.
