An Ontario-based bluegrass band, The Slocan Ramblers, will perform at the Errington War Memorial Hall on March 5.
Showtime is 8 p.m., and facemasks and vaccine passports will be required by audience members.
“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,” read a release.
“On their much-anticipated album Queen City Jubilee (2019 Juno Award Nominee for Traditional Roots Album of the Year), the Slocans showcase their unique blend of bluegrass, old-time and folk with deep song-writing, lightning fast instrumentals and sawdust-thick vocals. With their trademark raucous energy, the Slocan Ramblers are at the top of their game – writing and playing tunes to keep you up all night. This is roots music without pretension, music to make you feel something – say hello to your new favourite band.”
The Slocan Ramblers are comprised of Frank Evans on banjo, Adrian Gross on mandolin and Darryl Poulsen on guitar.
