The Lantern Folk Roots Music Society is very pleased to present
The Slocan Ramblers Sunday, May 13th, 2018
at the home of James Anderson, on beautiful Redlich Pond in old Glenmore.
1640 Gillard Drive, Kelowna, concert at 7:30 pm., doors open at 7 pm.

Tom Power, host of CBC Radio's 'q', says that, "it's rare for Canadians (especially young Canadians)
to play this music with such authority, passion and yet ability for experimentation."

The Slocan Ramblers are Canada’s young bluegrass band to watch.
Rooted in the tradition, fearlessly creative, and possessing a bold, dynamic sound,
The Slocans (2015 Edmonton Folk Fest Emerging Artist Award recipients),
have quickly become a leading light of Canada’s roots music scene, built on their reputation
for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and their
uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan.

tickets go on sale soon... stay tuned..
