The Slocan Ramblers

This week, Z. speaks with The Slocan Ramblers. This fearless, fleet-fingered string band is adventurously advancing the high lonesome sound of southern bluegrass to great acclaim, and not from the swampy states where it‘s known best, but in a lakeside folk hotbed that has become the cosmopolitan music mecca of Canada – Toronto.
Their newest string oddesey – “Queen City Jubilee” – featuring a lovable zombie on its painted cover, was recently nominated for the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy the Juno for traditional roots album, and make sure you stick around to hear each band member doing a musical experiment where Z. asks them to musically respond to a slightly offensive Cards Against Humanity prompt.
