The Slocan Ramblers
The Slocan Ramblers are Canadas bluegrass band to watch. Rooted in tradition, fearlessly creative and possessing a bold, dynamic sound, The Slocans have become a leading light of todays 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 much-anticipated new album Queen City Jubilee, 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, this new album presents The Slocan Ramblers at the top of their game writing and playing tunes to keep you up all night. This is roots music without pretension, music intended to make you feel something say hello to your new favourite band.
I love it smokin bluegrass!
If youve grown tired of the same old sounds, heres a band who reinvents a genre.
Contemporary bluegrass at its very best.  Their third album, Queen City Jubilee, could be the one that propels them to the forefront of the acoustic roots scene.
Songlines Magazine (UK)
The Slocan Ramblers put on one of the most vibrant shows of acoustic music Ive seen in some time. Its rare for Canadians (especially young Canadians) to play this music with such authority, passion and yet ability for experimentation. Chops galore, and a handsome bunch of fellas
+ Eavesdrop Trio
Hailing from the Northeast, these Pioneer Valley natives provide a sound all their own; a perfect combination of soulful vocals, intricate harmonies, contagious melodies and moving rhythm. Originating as a trio, friends Kara Rose Wolf, Kerrie T. Bowden and Laura Marie Picchi maintain their vocal roots and continue to shape their sound through writing and collaborative instrumentation. Eavesdrops debut EP, The Afterglow, showcased the trios vocally charged acoustic, folk, soul roots. With their latest release, TIDES, the band has expanded into a six piece ensemble. Co-produced by Alan Evans and Ross Bellenoit, TIDES is the bands first full length album. It brings the listener on a ride alongside the three songbirds, taking a deeper look into the life events that fostered their creativity.
"Life is a series of beginnings and endings, of infinite cycles.
TIDES is a representation of the phases within and the experiences that shape who we are.
It's a reflection of mistakes we've made and the lessons we've learned;
a journey through understanding and self-discovery.
