CORNWALL — Aultsville Theatre is proud to present one of Canada’s hottest bluegrass bands, The Slocan Ramblers, Friday September 13 at 7:30 p.m. With rave reviews from the BBC, and garnering a 2019 Juno-Award nomination for Traditional Roots Album of the Year – this band’s live set is not to be missed.
Rooted in traditional bluegrass music, the band is able to instill both the old and the modern into their creative process. Influenced by artists such as The Stanley Brothers, Norman Blake and Steve Earle – the band relishes in blending lightning fast / devilishly intricate instrumentals with sawdust-thick vocals. Fearlessly inventive and possessing a bold, dynamic sound, The Slocan Ramblers have quickly become the leading light of Canada’s roots 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 Slocan Ramblers understand that if you polish up the music, you lose the raw excitement that makes it so vibrant. Their newest album “Queen City Jubilee”, is a testament to their collective talents and incredible energy.
Tickets are $40 (plus applicable surcharges), and are available in advance at the Cornwall Civic Complex Box Office, by phone at 613-938-9400 and online at www.aultsvilletheatre.com. Contact Janet Martel at Aultsville Theatre for more information on this event.
