THE SLOCAN RAMBLERS  +ALAN SNODDY (ex STARS guitarist)

Hello Darlin’ Productions présente:

THE SLOCAN RAMBLERS

The Slocan Ramblers started turning heads in early 2009 while playing casual gigs on the Toronto roots scene. With a weekly local pub gig becoming a staple of the city’s thriving acoustic music scene, the Slocans quickly earned a reputation throughout Canada for their energetic live performances, impressive musicianship and uncanny ability to convert anyone that stands in their path into a fan. Though the Slocans have moved far beyond their bar room roots, with career highlights including standing ovations at the legendary Mariposa Folk Festival, an opening show for Steve Martin on the main stage at Toronto Jazz Fest, and tours across Canada, the raw intensity and drive forged in their years in the bar continues to set them apart. With their debut album “Shaking Down the Acorns” receiving wide acclaim (Sing Out! Magazine, Huffington Post etc…) and a sophomore release in the works, this fearless four piece is sure to keep garnering attention beyond the traditional bluegrass fan-base.

ALAN SNODDY (ex STARS guitarist)

The debut EP "Shot of Rhythm" from ex Stars guitarist Alan Snoddy is about as far from the indie rock sextet as you can get. Featuring members of Steve Earle & The Dukes, Blue Rodeo, Sam Roberts Band, The Trews, Sloan, & Serena Ryder. Snoddy pens Americana alt country anthems that journey down lost highways, crisscrossing the North American landscape from the California coast all the way back home to the snowy white north. You might ask yourself how a native Montrealer who now calls Toronto home can paint a musical picture of a music and time he can't truly call his own? Snoddy calls up a quote from guitarist David Rawlings: "When you read Hemmingway's Old Man and the Sea...and you like it... but then find out that not only is the man who wrote it not a commercial fisherman, he isn't even Cuban. Do you like it any less?" "Shot of Rhythm" is out this Spring.
